This week at Crazy 4 Challenges, we were asked to make a card (or project) using flowers! This might be a common challenge but we all love flowers so much it makes sense to repeat it often!
I worked with some Authentique papers which included a ‘cut-apart sheet.’ You know, those papers with multiple images or borders that can be cut up and used on your projects. I chose the more vintage side, the other side was more retro, and arranged them on a heart die cut. For the background panel, I repeatedly stamped the music border using my MISTI. It helps because you can make sure the border is straight. This can be tricky with some thin borders. Also it helps make sure the stamping is straight on the paper and keeps the spacing consistent when you leave the border on the door of the tool and just move the paper.
I stamped on ivory paper using clear embossing powder. Then I sponged some Hero Arts and PTI inks that matched the colours in the patterned paper. I decided an ombre would look best, isn’t it pretty? For the center of the heart die cut (Hero Arts), I stamped one of the images from the Love Always stamp set by Simon Says. I don’t have dies so I trimmed it by hand. It isn’t an intricate image to cut so no biggie. The edges of the patterned papers were lightly inked with Vintage Photo to add to the antiqued look.
I hope you can find time to make and link up a floral card over at C4C. We would love to have you!
