Choose Happiness- A Color and A Sketch Challenge

Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to share another card that I created yesterday using the FMS173 Sketch along with the HSSCC205Color Challenge

Again, if you not have already visited either site yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- fantastic ideas from all! 

To create this Clean and Layered (CAL) card:

Using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp three of the flowers along with the bird and sentiment onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamp the leaf image twice onto another panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.

Color the leaves using the Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker and add a few shadows with the Sahara Sand Marker.

Color the flowers using an AquaPainter™ with Calypso Coral Classic Ink and add shadows with the Stampin’ Write Calypso Marker and use the Crushed Curry Marker for the flower centers.

Carefully cut out ("fussy-cut") each of the flowers as well as the bird.

Use the Crushed Curry, Calyspo Coral and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Markers to color the flourish around the sentiment and use the Artisan Label Punch to punch out the sentiment. 

Using the Artisan Label Punch, punch out another piece from Coastal Cabana cardstock, cut the label in half horizontally and trim toward the centers on the points that were cut in half.  Layer the Coastal Cabana split label behind the sentiment.

Trim a piece of retired Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper (DSP) and mount onto a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock. 

Add this panel to a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, trim and mount onto the Calypso Coral card base.

Trim and mount the stamped leaf panel onto a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock and add to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 
Adhere the flowers and bird using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the sentiment to finish off the card.
