Challenge #3

We (the design team) have a challenge this week to make a card using 2 solid colored papers, one printed paper, eyelets. brads or ribbon. No other embellishments. I have had so much fun with this Fall Flowers set this sounded like a lot of fun.

I picked my printed paper and then decided to make this card very bright so I chose two complementary colors. First I stamped the flower with versamark and ink several times on the printed paper and clear embossed. I hand sketched a flower pot and cut it out putting double sided tape on the back. After cutting the flowers out I arranged them on the back of the pot attaching them to the tape so they wouldn't move around while I was placing them. Using all of the flowers but one I was ready to add some pop dots to the back for dimension. You can see the placement of the various pieces of solid colors and where I put the potted flowers. I took the last flower and cut out several of the petals, placed them around to look like the flowers were naturally shedding.I decided to use a ribbon and since I didn't have the right sizes or color of brads, I used punches to made faux brads. This card was really fun to make. It's a little outside my normal "traditional" look but I really love the little bouquet! I hope you like the outcome! Thanks for dropping by!
