Good Evening Crafters !
I hope you are having a great week. It was warm & sunny here today in Ontario. We are enjoying an early Spring with lots of flowers blooming... wonderful !
I'm entering this card into two challenges today. Impression Obsessions challenge this Thursday is "Flower Power" - all the details & creations are here at Impression Obsession's Blog .
I planned to use IO's "Fiesta Flower" and when I saw the "For Your Inspiration" photo challenge for this week (see photo at the bottom of this post) I thought the colours suited a 'Fiesta Flower' ! All the details & creations for FYI Challenge #28 are here at For Your Inspiration Blog.
IO Stamps used: CC0159 CAC Spatter, H2330 Fiesta Flower & B3552 "Just a Note".
The background is a sheet from Basic Grey's Lime Rickey collection which I stamped using 'Spatter Cover a Card' with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and then blended a little more around the outer edges.
I embossed the Fiesta Flower with black on the background and five more times on white smooth cardstock. I coloured the flowers & leaves with either Dusty Concord or Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks and cut out various sections as shown. I popped up a couple of the layers. I added further color with Prisma Pencils including a little green which I see in the photo.
The sentiment was stamped & embossed with black on Spellbinders S4-322 Grommet Tag with Spiced Marmalade & a little Shabby Shutters Distress Inks blended over the lettering.
The final touches are a piece of hand dyed silk ribbon, green & purple stickles and a few green rhinestones.
And below is the photo for the FYI Challenge #28. Now that these photos are together, I see that my purple is showing blue tone. It really is more purple - honest ! I always have trouble getting purples to look the right shade in photos.
Isn't this scene gorgeous ? I have another idea that I hope to get onto paper and enter into the challenge as well.
Well that's it for this evening ! Thanks for stopping by - I appreciate your visits & kind comments !
Have a great weekend !
