Tomorrow is Tuesday, and that means another week has gone by since the last Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. My card for tomorrow’s color challenge features the SU Botanical Builder Dies. I think the floral dies are so pretty and can be combined in so many ways to create gorgeous flowers.
Vicki Dutcher (vdutchr) is the hostess for this week’s Color Challenge, and she asked us to use Stampin’ Up! colors of Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, and Emerald Envy. These colors are beautiful together! Here is my card featuring the colors.
To create the card, I began by cutting a Solar White card stock panel with the ODBD Majestic Medallion Die (the largest die). Laying the die over the die cut, I used a Black Copic Multiliner to mark the edges. Then I used the Saharan Screen Card Panel Die to cut out a Solar White stencil. I laid the stencil over the Majestic Medallion die cut and, using SU Tempting Turquoise and Emerald Envy classic ink, I alternated sponging the inks across the stencil onto the other die cut.
The above photo shows the sponging, as well as a white embossed bird and birdcage. Vicki’s challenge included for dessert (i.e., extra points) the addition of a bird. I also added red cardinals onto the sentiment piece that I made with the ODBD Ornate Ovals Dies (smallest die). I added the sentiment, One-of-a-Kind, onto this piece in red ink. The sentiment is from the Altenew One Of A Kind Stamp Set. The following photo is of the sentiment.
For the foliage around the flowers, I used the ODBD Lovely Leaves Dies to create the leaves and sponged on Emerald Envy ink with different intensity so they would vary in color. You can see the variations in the photo below.
After adhering the flowers to the card, I embellished them by placing Tempting Turquoise and/or Real Red candy dots in the centers.
I hope you are inspired by my card! Thanks for stopping in and leaving comments!
