TCC69 Camellias in Bloom
It’s time for The Card Concept #69 “Rich Texture” Challenge! I love this gorgeous inspiration photo with the weathered chair and beautiful flowers and was inspired to create a simple Mixed Media floral card.
I have incorporated a few other online challenges into the design as well- the Just Us Girls #384 Trend Week “Use A Stencil” Challenge and the Flower Challenge #6 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to check out the wonderful Design Team cards at The Card Concept as well as the other two challenge galleries- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Using your computer along with a printer, print out the Power Poppy digital image of Camellias and the sentiment from the digital set, Rose and Chamomile onto white cardstock (you can use Word for this step, I use the retired Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio program :-)).
2). Color the Camellias image using watercolor pencils along with a water brush, layering color until you are satisfied. Die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die and mount onto dark gray cardstock, trim and mount onto white cardstock.
3). Use a flourish stencil with a stencil brush to apply Hickory Smoke Distress Ink around the petals and apply a clear shimmer pen to the petals. Add a few white highlights to the flower centers with an extra fine white paint pen.
4). Emboss a piece of dark gray cardstock with a woodgrain embossing folder, trim and mount a piece of gray satin ribbon (wrapping the ribbon ends behind the panel). Mount onto the white card base.
5). Adhere the floral panel to the card front and add a few pearls to the corners.
6). Trim the sentiment, create the banner points by hand (I used a hexagon punch), layer onto dark gray cardstock and mount onto the card with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
