This week the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #CCMC595 is a color challenge.
Honestly I think color challenges are harder for me than sketch challenges. I should look back at prior posts because I probably say that about sketch challenges too! I am happy with the end result but it took me a while to get there.
This is a quick and easy card. I stamped the image from the Painted Poppies set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored them in using Poppy Parade, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends. I also used the Color Lifter to lighten some of the areas of the flowers to create some shading. The Layering Squares dies were used to cut out the flowers and the Rich Razzleberry scallop behind the flowers. I attached a flower sequin from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins to each square and inserted a Silver Metallic Pearl in the center.
I used the Scripty 3-D Embossing folder (one of my faves!) and embossed a white panel to place the squares on. Are you wondering why I didn't just emboss the front of the card base? I wanted to hide the Poppy Parade ribbon from showing on the inside of the card.
Be sure to check out what the other members of the Create with Connie & Mary design team created for this challenge.
