Sending Love and Sympathy- Two Challenges in One!
I hope all of you are having a wonderful Monday! I was able to spend a few minutes in the craft room and decided to create a card using the Splitcoaststampers CC506 Color Challenge- Rose Red, Mossy Meadow and Basic Black (dessert option- ribbon) along with the PPA229 Pals Paper Arts Sketch 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 floral stamp from Choose Happiness using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp repeatedly onto Whisper White cardstock (re-inking for each stamping).
Use the AquaPainter™ with Rose Red Classic Ink, create a color wash and apply to all of the blossoms. Apply darker ink to create dimension to the petals and carefully cut out each blossom.
Ink the leaf stamp using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp repeatedly onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock for the background panel.
Color the leaves using the Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write marker.
Use the AquaPainter™ with Mossy Meadow Classic Ink, create a color wash and apply over the entire background. Using Mossy Meadow Classic Ink, stamp the lattice from Summer Silhouettes over the background and add a bit of distressing using the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.
Sporadically apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Picket Fence Distress Stain over the entire background. Mount the panel onto the Basic Black card front.
Adhere the flowers per the sketch and add the large flower in the upper left hand corner using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock- create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch. Mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock (creating the points again with the Hexagon Punch).
Mount the sentiment onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®- add a piece of one of the flowers to the edge of the sentiment.
Use a Faber-Castelle White Pitt Pen to add highlights to the flower centers and adhere the larger Pearls to the corners and a few seed Pearls to the flower centers to finish off the card.
