TCC69 Camellias in Bloom

Hi Friends!!

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.

Stamp Sets:  Camellias, Rose and Chamomile (both digital from Power Poppy)

Ink/Mediums: Printer Ink- black; Derwent® Watercolor Pencils, Hickory Smoke Distress Ink, Extra Fine Sharpie® White Paint Pen, Spectrum Noir® Clear Glitter Pen
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray

Accessories: AquaPainter™, 1” Gray Satin Ribbon, Pearls

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by!  I hope all of you have a wonderful week and you will be able to join us for the #69 “Rich Texture” Challenge at The Card Concept!

Well you sure know how to work a digi stamp - these big ol' blooms are absolutely lovely and I love the way your sentiment stretches over the sides of the card.

Those flower images are so gorgeous and love the detail you created on them with your colouring skills. The background pattern is so pretty too and is subtle enough to make those flowers pop. So very glad you joined us at The Flower Challenge!
