The Earth Laughs in Flowers- Seasonal Shelves with Two Challenges :-)
I wanted to create a card using the CQC291 ColourQ Challenge along with the Freshly Made Sketches FMS186 Sketch Challenge.
When I saw the cute chicken in the inspiration photo from the ColourQ, I thought of a neglected retired set, Seasonal Shelves and decided to give it some "love" :-)
Again, I hope you will take the time to visit the above sites- both sites have fabulous Design Team creations as well as the wonderful galleries!
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of retired Poppy Parade cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.
Cut a piece of retired Gumball Green Designer Series Paper (DSP) on a diagonal, adhere to the card front and add a scrap piece of Poppy Parade cardstock to cover the seam of the DSP.
Ink the retired stamp from Seasonal Shelves using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Color the image using Stampin’ Write Markers- Hello Honey, retired Bordering Blue, Gumball Green and Poppy Parade and the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker to add shadows.
Fussy cut the image and use a foam brush to apply Mod Podge® to the entire image.
Allow the Mod Podge® to dry and mount the focal image onto a piece of Moonlight DSP, trim and mount onto a piece of retired Poppy Parade cardstock.
Ink the sentiment banner with the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write marker and punch the image out with the Banner Punch. Punch another banner from the Moonlight DSP and adhere behind the focal image.
Add the focal image to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Use the Bow Builder Punch to create the paper bow from retired Poppy Parade cardstock and add the Hello Honey button with Natural Linen Thread to the center.
Mount the bow onto card front to finish off the card.
