The Flower Challenge #67

Hello everyone!

Hope you’re all having a great day. Today I’m sharing a quick card I created for The Flower Challenge #67. Our theme this month is “Add A Heart”

When I said a quick card I really meant it. I had a bunch of these flowers cut and assembled. I used a digital design from silhouette studio.

I cut a panel of foiled pattern paper in the size of an A 2 card front. Used this beautiful heart die cut in the middle of the panel and arranged flowers along the bottom left corner of this heart.

The heart is popped up on foam tape and so are the flowers.

The sentiment was also a pre stamped and die cut sentiment from Taylored Expression.

I keep a bunch of pre stamped strip sentiments in a box organized by theme/ sentiment so I can quickly grab one and add it to a card whenever I need one.

This card has a lot of gold going on so I didn’t think any embellishment was necessary.

So this completed my quick heart card. Hope this inspires you to create your own projects with heart and play along with us at The Flower Challenge Blog.

Monochromatic Card/ The Flower Challenge #64

When you say Monochromatic, first thing that pops in my head is just one color and pretty boring. But most certainly, that is not true. Even if, you use just one color you can use different values of the same color to create highlights and shadows. Let’s not talk about the whole artistic expertise here as I am not one.

Hello Everyone!

We at the The Flower Challenge blog are starting off this new year with a new theme for January 2022. Our theme this month is “MONOCHROME”

Here is my take on it.

Focus

Started off by stamping the beautiful floral image by Gina K Designs called Grateful Blooms with Hero arts Unicorn white pigment ink. But of course,I did have to heat set the ink before I started coloring as this ink dries slow.

I used Prismacolor pencils to color this beautiful image. After my image was colored in a slight definition of highlights and shadows I used the coordinating die to cut the image out.

Background

For the background of my card I used the same Hero Arts Plum card-stock piece that was cut to 4 and a quarter inches by 5 and a half inches. I used Memory Box Matinee Rectangle die to cut out the middle portion of the panel and popped it up with foam at the back.

Sentiment

The sentiment is from Ton Stamps. Usually, I keep sentiment strips already stamped and embossed and cut to go on a card in an organizer, so I don’t have to spend time picking out the sentiments for my card.

Embelishment

Finally, I added some clear sequins with liquid glue, cut off the overhanging pieces of the image with a pair of scissors and called it done.

If you are interested, I have created a short video while I was creating this card. Enjoy!!

Hope you get inspired by my card today and if you create your monochromatic card don’t forget to share at The Flower Challenge.
