ODBD A True Friend

Have you seen the gorgeous Bearded Iris stamp from the ODBD A True Friend stamp set?  It is a large stamp, but it is gorgeous.  The card I’m sharing with you today spotlights a set of Bearded Irises.

ODBD A True Friend

If you like the Bearded Iris, you can get only that stamp here without the sentiments that come with the stamp set.

Yes, indeed this is a large floral stamp – stamped three times on my card!! This card is for Vicki’s (vdutchr) “So Coral Cantaloupe” Color Challenge, CC592, on Splitcoaststampers!  Vicki picked three colors that are beautiful together!  The colors are SU So Saffron, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Calypso Coral.  I colored the irises with Copic Sketch Markers that closely match the challenge colors.

I think I overdid it, don’t you? The stamp image is large, and I couldn’t stop with one stamped iris, I had to stamp three (using masking, of course)!!!  Go big, or go home!  Isn’t that the cliche? LOL

Dessert (i.e., extra points) for the color challenge is “dimension”.  I used foam tape to pop up the Spellbinders 5 x 7 Herloom Legacy die cut onto the white card base.  I added clear Wink of Stella to the beards of the irises. Hopefully you can see that.

I am also submitting this card to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog for its ODBDSLC276, Anything that Grows with ODBD.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful, blessed day!

UPDATE – 7-26-16:  This card was chosen as the Splitcoaststampers Favorite for the Color Challenge for last Tuesday!  What an honor!!
