The card I am featuring today I made for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #77, featuring this sketch .
I started out with some background paper from Christina Re that I had been given some time ago, and decided on my colour scheme from that. I loved the paper so much that I kept the central feature fairly contained to show off the design.
Although it is not easily apparent, the stamens in the paper (which has a lovely rich sheen to it IRL) are pale blue, and the blue card I used is an almost identical colour. The central panel is stamped with the head of a flower from the Ornate Flowers clear stamp set by Paper Studio. I inked it using the 'rock and roll' technique using the Memento inks Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa, and distressed and sponged the edges of that panel with the paler ink.
I chose the double sided ribbon as the brown fitted so well, and the pink added just enough contrast to balance things out with the pink flowers, which were a packet I had had on hand for ages.... I really am starting to use some of my stash!! There were enough flowers in varying sizes to add some real interest, and for the main feature I layered three. Each flower then had a wee pink dimensional flower added which is quite shiney and really lifts the whole card.
The final feature was the wee tag and sentiment tucked in under the big flower. The edges of that were also distressed and sponged.
I am linking this to the following challenges:
