TCC94 Praying for You

Hi Friends!

Isn’t this a fun photo?  

I love the beautiful red bicycle as well as the gorgeous bouquet of flowers and was inspired to create a Clean and Layered, Classy and Elegant Mixed Media card.

I incorporated the Power Poppy digital stamp images from Countryside Bouquet (2014) and Roses and Chamomile. 

I love to participate in online challenges and will also be linking this card to the Simon Says Work It Wednesday May 2018 “Inspiredby Sunshine & Summertime” Challenge (love the red and bright colors of the flowers that remind me of summer), the Retro Rubber #87 "Let's Get Sketchy" Challenge (the digital stamp images are several years old and this is the first card I have created with the Countryside Bouquet image) and the Word Art Wednesday #336-#337 “Anything Goes” Challenge.

Just a reminder that the Card Concept is a bi-weekly challenge that has an inspiration photo along with a suggestion of design styles that you can choose from to create your card- Clean and Simple, Clean and Graphic, Clean and Layered, Shabby Chic, Freestyle Collage, Classy and Elegant and Mixed Media (or you can combine several styles for your own style).

If you have not had a chance to visit us at The Card Concept or visit the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will find time to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Using a design software (I used the retired Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio™), position the Countryside Bouquet digital floral image along with the sentiment from Roses and Chamomile onto your screen, enlarge if desired and print out onto a piece of white cardstock. Watercolor the image with distress inks, water-based markers, alcohol markers and watercolor pencils.

2). Die cut the floral image with a stitched oval die, mount onto another oval cut from concord cardstock (die cut with a slightly larger oval die).

3). Trim the sentiment, create the fishtail banner with a hexagon punch, mount onto concord cardstock.

4). Die cut a piece of white cardstock with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto another rectangle die cut from concord cardstock and adhere to the poppy card front.  Add the stitched horizontal strip of concord designer paper, add the grosgrain ribbon with the ribbon slide, wrapping the ends behind the card panel.  Mount the entire card front onto the white card base.

5).  Mount the bouquet oval and the sentiment onto the card front with dimensional foam.

6). Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flower petals and an extra fine white paint pen to add a few highlights to the flower centers.

Your colouring is, as always, masterful. You achieve such a sense of depth and realism that I can almost smell them! The composition is lovely and I really like the little ribbon passing through the buckle/button. It's a pleasure to have you join us again at Retro Rubber Challenge.

Love every detail of this gorgeous card, from the ribbon through the button to the layout and sentiment but, it's your amazing coloring that brings this beautiful bouquet from Power Poppy to life.
Thank you for playing along with RETRO RUBBER, hope you join us again soon.
