This card was made for the Color challenge and Sketch challenge. Love the sketch and really like the colors.
CC216 & SC226
The base is real red run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder (one of my favorites). Cut out 2 strips of basic black and used the scalloped border punch on both edges. Had some of this great BoBunny 2 sided designer paper, which fit the old olive theme wonderfully. Used the two sides of the paper, one on each strip. The image was stamped with stazon black and heat set, then colored using the aqua painter and ink. I should mention that I used watercolor paper. Painted the image with real red, old olive and creamy caramel. The flower was stamped on vellum and colored with real red, then punched out with the scalloped circle punch. Punched out a white piece of cardstock and laid the vellum, colored side down on the white cs. Used a Nestibilities diecut scallop circle to cut the old olive cs which was then attached to the flower. Added glue dots to pop it up. Opal Pearl Drops were added to the scalloped edges of the black cs and a rub-on butterfly and sentiment finish it off. Ooops!, almost forgot, I used diamond stickles for the centre of the flower.
Thanks for spending some time with me. Have a wonderful day and Happy Stamping!
