HYCCT1518 You Are Precious To Me!
Hi Again Friends!!
This card was created for the Splitcoaststampers Hope You Can Cling To HYCCT1518 Emily’s “Make A Masterpiece” Challenge (to create a card inspired by a famous artist so I chose this Georgia O’Keefe’s Poppy image- see more challenge details here ).
Since the HYCCT Challenges are for the MD Anderson Cancer Center and October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I decided to make my poppy a bit more pinkish coral than orange :-)
I am also going to link this to the Addicted to Stamps and More! Anything Goes #166 Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will take the time to visit both of the above sites- great inspiration from all!!
To create this card:
Using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, stamp the large poppy image from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Precious Poppy onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Color the poppy image with an AquaPainter™ along with various watercolor pencils, Calypso Coral and Cajun Craze Classic Ink, finish off with Frost White Shimmer Paint and “fussy-cut” out the image.
Create a mat for the flower from retired Comfort Café Designer Series Paper (DSP) layered onto Very Vanilla cardstock, trim and layer onto retired Midnight Muse cardstock, trim and layer onto Very Vanilla cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the My Favorite Things™ (MFT) Stitched Rectangle Die to cut out a large rectangle from Very Vanilla cardstock and the MFT Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner Die to cut a banner from Midnight Muse cardstock.
Add a piece of ivory crocheted lace to the Midnight Muse banner die cut along with a strip of 5/8” Rust Satin Ribbon (both from my stash).
Mount the Very Vanilla stitched rectangle onto a piece of Midnight Muse cardstock, trim and add the banner layer.
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of retired Comfort Café DSP, mount onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Midnight Muse cardstock, trim and mount onto the Very Vanilla card base.
Add the layered banner panel and mount the floral square with dimensional foam.
Stamp the sentiment from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Precious Poppies with Midnight Muse Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
Add the banner points with the Hexagon Punch and mount onto the card front using dimensional foam to finish off the card.
