Hi Everyone. Happy Monday
I have a card to share with you today using the Freshly Made Sketches sketch, the Color Throwdown colors and the theme from Less is More :-) It's not often I get to a three challenge combination. Sadly.. I missed the submission for FMS.
Before I share the card and details with you - I wanted to say a huge thank you to the LIM challenge for showcasing this card. I loved making the card and am grateful for their recognition :-)
I used some of the flowers from the Altenew Garden Treasure stamp set for this card. First, I had to deal with the circular element. I used a stitched circle but for embossing the circle as opposed to cutting it out. Once I had that, I stamped my main flower and leaves and fussy cut them.
I then had to deal with the "shadow" element from the LIM challenge. I stamped some of the little buds into the circle and used some yellow ink and water to create some splatters. All that was left to do was assemble my card and add a sentiment.
Here's a closeup of the background with the splatters and shadow elements - the flowers in the shadow of the main focal flower :-)
Here's the finished card:
To add a finishing touch to the card, I took some Novo drops and added some white dots in the middle of the flower to add a little life. Because I wanted the leaves and the sentiment to hang off of the card on either side, I had to reduce the size of the card down to 4".
I'll be back tomorrow with another card and some wildlife shots. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
