Blue Floral Card

Hello everyone,

Just a quick post of my latest creation:


I decided to create another "canvas" card so I used a piece of cardboard, covered it with scrunched up tissue paper and a layer of gesso. When that was dry, I applied some texture paste through TH Bubble stencil and when that layer was dry I randomly applied Faded Jeans DI.


Then I just layered up different elements to create this design based on Cardabilities #126 sketch.


Flowers are handmade, flourish branches are Cricut cutouts, the frame is resin embellishment inked with Faded Jeans ink and painted with Chipped Sapphire paint. The sentiment is Stamplorations Old Type stamp, stamped with versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I am entering this card into following challenges:

Cardabilities Challenge #126

with this sketch:


Creative Craft Cottage #43 Layer it Up

The Mixed Media Card Challenge #13 Blue (my favorite color :) )

  2. As soon as I saw your lavishly blue card, I knew I recognized that sketch...it's gorgeous and I LOVE that frame you used for the centerpiece! The variations of the blues are terrific. That stark blue in the background with the matching colored rose looks incredible for a pop! Beautiful work Samra. :)
