Delicate Dahlias

It is time for a new Festive Friday Challenge.  What is the Festive Friday Challenge?  The Festive Friday Challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that has an Inspo List which is inspired by a festivity.  There are always 10 items on the Inspo List and to play along with the challenge you need to use 3 items from the list on your project.  

Here is the Inspo List.


Here's my card for the challenge.

Delicate Dahlias-FF91

I used a stencil from the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks.  I used  Blending Brushes and started with Daffodil Delight ink, then Coastal Cabana, and lastly Pear Pizzazz.  Once the blending was done I used a Water Painter and watered down some Tuxedo Black Memento ink and tapped the Water Painter  to get the splatters.  This seems to be my current favorite thing.  

I stamped the dahlia on Basic White CS in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and used  Blending Brushes to color in the flower.  I stamped 2 leaves and used a Blending Brush to color them.  I fussy cut the flowers and leaves which was a little tedious but not difficult.   The dahlia is mounted on a Basic White Stitched Rectangle and then layered on Basic Black CS.  The ribbon is the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon.  In the center of the dahlia is a Matte Black Dot.


Let's see how I did.  I used a stencil for the background.  I have layers on my card.  I used ribbon. I am also claiming ink spots.  Ink splatters are spots, right?

Splatters are DEFINITELY ink spots! I love your card, Sharon. What a gorgeous background. I love that wonderful flower on center stage. Your color choices are fabulous. I love the detail of that little black bow, and of course, your signature inside stamping is always a favorite of mine.

Beautiful, Sharon! I LOVE the colors. Your stenciling is fabulous, and provides a gorgeous backdrop for the flowers. The bow and the spatters are the perfect accents. Have a wonderful week!
