I am back from the most amazing vacation and ready for some card making :)
I wanted to make sure that I don't miss the deadlines of some of my favorite challenges, so I combined requirements of 5 of them to create this card:
I created a tall and skinny card based on a sketch from Mojo Monday
I used the color palette from House of Cards Challenge
I made the assortment of flowers for Flower Power at Artist Trading Post Exchange
I used ink, paint, seam binding, stamping, die cutting, distressing tool, embossing and flowers for Chose Your Challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog
and I was inspired by beautiful color palette and photo by Scrapmagic
In this photo you can clearly see how dimensional this card really is...
Here is the closeup of the flower assortment. All the flowers were treated with antique linen, broken china and peacock feather distress inks, and then covered with picket fence and clear crackle paint.
I started off with 110lb beige cardstock for my base, then added a layer of navy blue cardstock with splashes of white paint. The next layer was a piece of dark beige cardstock also splashed with white paint and with edges covered with picket fence distress paint. Both layers were distressed on the edges...
Next up I used a Spellbinders fence die cut and a piece of patterned paper distressed with antique linen distress ink. Then I layered bunch of different Spellbinder dies all treated with picket fence distress paint.
I added a vellum banner and stamped my Dear Mom sentiment with faded jeans distress ink. All the die cuts were mounted with adhesive foam for that extra dimension...
I used seam binding ribbon in ivory color to create this shabby bow. I hand died the ribbon with broken china and spiced marmalade distress inks.
Just one more view of the finished card...
