My card today is for two challenges: Paper Take Weekly (Flower Power-to add flowers to your card); and Color Creative Classroom CMC Copic Challenge #75 (Anything goes-color any image anyway you like-using any medium); and the Tuesday Throwdown #161 (use Your Scraps)
I made this mostly with scraps that were on my work table. The white back die-cut (Spellbinders Decorative Labels One) was a discard from another project, and I cut & embossed a scrap of green with Spellbinders Fair Isle Pendant. I simply layered them together.
The 2 background pieces (mat and DP) were pieces from my scrap bin, and I'm not sure what brand they are. I inked the six petal flower and a leaf from Close to My Heart's 'A Flowering Bunch' with Momento Tuxedo Black and Bamboo Leaves, and stamped the leaf 5 times and the flower 3 times on scraps of white. I colored them with Copics: flowers-G40, G43, G82, BG57, BG78, and YG21; leaves-G40, G43 & G82. I hand cut them all out. I attached one flower directly to the card, and the popped the other 2 up with different thicknesses of foam dimensionals, then tucked the leaves in around them. I added some Recollections glitter domes to the centers of the flowers, and some Basic Grey rhinestones to the die-cuts. Oh, and I stamped the sentiment (Whipper Snapper Designs 'Birthday Wishes') with Memento Bamboo Leaves.
Comments always appreciated.
