CAS Bloom with Hope- Two Challenges in One
I hope all of you are having a great week so far! I decided to take a break from the craft room organization project and create a card using the FabFri52 Color Challenge along with the #95 CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge.
Again, I hope you have the time to stop by both sites to check out the great inspiration from the Design Teams as well as the other entries!
To create this card:
Ink the Bloom with Hope stamp using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. Create a mask from scrap paper or from repositionable note paper, mask the image and stamp again- repeat to stamp the line of flowers.
Use an AquaPainter™ with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink for the blossoms and Tangelo Twist Classic Ink for the background. Use a Stampin’ Write Basic Black marker to add lines to the stem images and a retired White Watercolor Pencil to add a few highlights to the petals.
Ink the retired En Francais background stamp with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp off onto scrap paper. Position the floral image over the background stamp and use your fingers to apply portions of the stamp to the image.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Window Frames Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image as well as another frame from Basic Black cardstock. Mount the focal image onto the Basic Black frame and trim the top portion off. Add the scrap piece of Back to Black Designer Series Paper (DSP) along with a strip of Basic Black cardstock.
Place a piece of Whisper White cardstock over the En Francais background stamp (do not re-ink) and again, lightly press certain areas with your fingers to randomly stamp the background image onto the Whisper White cardstock. Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Add the strip of Basic Black cardstock to the top area, add the scrap strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock to the center and add the small strip of Basic Black to finish off the vertical element of the sketch (I flipped the sketch to a landscape orientation).
Use an AquaPainter™ along with a Sponge Dauber to apply Tangelo Twist Classic Ink over the edges of the Whisper White card base.
Add the layered background panel and mount the floral focal image.
Stamp the sentiment from the retired Express Yourself hostess set onto Whisper White cardstock and cut the banner points using the Hexagon Punch. Mount onto Basic Black cardstock (creating the banner points as well with the Hexagon Punch) and mount onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add Pearls to the sentiment layer to finish off the card.
