This month's challenge is ...
Add a Butterfly &/or Color Challenge
While this is not my preferred color palette, I think my card would work well for a masculine card without the flowers. However, with the flowers, it certainly works for the girls in your life who love primary colors. So, here is my inspiration card for this month's challenge.
Cardstock: Blue, Red, Green
Colorbox Chalk Ink Pads: Yellow Ochre, Yellow Cadmium
Teresa Collins Embossing Folder: Chevron (8-1/2"x11")
Martha Stewart and Paper Studio Decorative Punches (shown in picture)
Beacon 3-in-1 Glue
Tim Holtz Ideaology Memo Pin
Splash of Color Mixed Media Phrases sticker sheet
I cut a piece of blue card stock to 7" x 10", folded in half to make a 7" x 5" card. I embossed the front of the card only with the embossing folder, and hit the high spots with the two yellow colors of Chalk Ink. I know the colors look green instead of yellow in my pictures, but I should have known that when I inked the yellow over the blue card stock, I would get green. Duh!
I printed out the images from the collage sheets and matted them onto red card stock, leaving a tiny border. These were adhered to the card front, as shown.
I punched many flower petals in the different sizes from red and blue card stock, and some leaves from the green card stock. These are the punches I used.
I misted each leaf and petal lightly with water and scrunched, pinched, and formed them to my liking. Let the petals and leave dry. They will now be nice and stiff. I then put the different petals together to form the flowers, which I turned into a bouquet for the card front.
I added a tiny bouquet at the top, above the focal collage image.
I added the phrase sticker with the memo pin to the bouquet, as shown. While I was making the card, I wondered, 'Just who is this woman flirting with the pilot?"
Well, that's about it. I hope you enjoyed my card this month and that I have been able to inspire and entice you to play along with us in this month's challenge, which can be seen by clicking here.
