F4A365 Pretty Potted Florals Birthday
I hope all of you are having a great week so far!
This card was designed for the Splitcoaststampers’ Free For All F4A365 “Pick a Combo” Challenge using the Pantone color chart for 2017 from Decoventure.
We were challenged to create our own color combination from the Pantone 2017 chart as long as one of the colors chosen is “Greenery” so I chose to pair Stampin’ Up! Wild Wasabi (Greenery) with Always Artichoke (Kale), Crushed Curry (Primrose Yellow), (Crushed Curry), Tangerine Tango (Flame) and a mix of blues (for Island Paradise).
I also used the Splitcoaststampers SC92 Sketch Challenge (from 10/04/2006- their challenges never expire) and will be linking this card to the Seize the Birthday 02/16/17 Challenge (I did not use the optional Seize the Toppings "Inlaid Dies" as part of my design).
To create this card:
1). Ink the SNSS Pretty Potted Florals with black ink and stamp onto white cardstock.
2). Color the image with alcohol markers along with water-based markers (I used a combination of Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and Stampin' Up! water based markers). Add details with the Sharpie Extra Fine White Paint Pen to the center of the flower.
3). Die cut the image with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto black cardstock, trimming close to the edge.
4). Use a stencil brush to lightly stencil distress ink (I used Mowed Lawn) with a chevron stencil over a piece of white cardstock, trim and mount onto black cardstock, trim and mount onto the white card base.
5). Trim two pieces of designer paper into large rectangles and mount onto black cardstock (again trimming close to the edge). Add the chevron patterned rectangle directly to the card front and add the bright orange panel with dimensional foam.
6). Use an embossing powder tool to prepare a scrap piece of black cardstock, ink the sentiment from SNSS Long Stem Silhouettes clear stamp set with embossing ink and stamp onto the prepared strip of cardstock, apply white embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Trim and create the flag banner with a hexagon or square punch (or by hand). Mount the onto the card front using dimensional foam on the far right hand side.
7). Finish off the card using a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the petals and flower pot.
Thanks again for taking the time to visit! I hope you will have a chance to check out the Splitcoaststampers’ Free for All Gallery and possibly create your own card using a color combination from the 2017 Pantone Color Chart.
Hugs and I hope you have a blessed weekend, sweet friends
