Happy Wednesday, peeps! Hope your week is going well! It's time for another Card Concept challenge, and look at this beautiful image Julie chose for us this week:
Obviously, that gorgeous bouquet prompted me to ink up the flowers from Ornate Style--this time I used Stazon Black ink on some watercolor paper, and I loosely watercolored them in:
I used inks of Petal Pink, Rich Razzleberry, Rococo Rose, So Saffron, Seaside Spray and Old Olive, then shadowed it with Sahara Sand, and gave it a Sahara Sand mat using the Ornate Layers dies. For a little extra interest, I stamped the center flower a second time, colored it and fussy-cut it, then popped it up with a dimensional:
I needed a sympathy card, so I stamped and heat-embossed this sentiment in Craft White ink on Basic Black cardstock and made a skinny banner:
and added a non-SU sentiment on the inside, along with the single daisy from the same Ornate Style set:
I was inspired by the colors of the flowers as well as the neutral background, so I would call this Clean and Layered, as the card is fairly simple, mainly concentrating on the large image! I hope you'll find some inspiration from the photo, as well as the amazing creations the design team has created! You can see all the styles, as well as the samples, at The Card Concept blog! Check them out and play along!
It wouldn't be fair to show you Jameson and Sawyer dying their eggs, and not show you the actual egg hunt!! Here are a few pix, including Slammer the dog, who seems to find that egg pretty interesting:
Thanks for popping in---enjoy your day and be blessed!
