The card I’m sharing today is combined for two challenges – the sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch and the colour challenge at Color Throwdown. These challenges combined effortlessly for me today – I love it when it all comes together in under an hour!
Here are their challenge pics:
Initially I was going to create a Christmas card, mainly because of the Merry Little Christmas DSP I had chosen, but then decided I wanted to go with a floral card instead. One of the things that I love about Stampin’ Up! DSPs is that the papers are so versatile. Even though this is a Christmas pack, the papers work well for any card.
The orchids I’ve used are from a set called Climbing Orchid. After stamping the outline of my orchids in Basic Black Archival Ink, I watercoloured my flowers in Dapper Denim Ink. The outline of the leaves are also stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink and then the centre is watercoloured with Old Olive Ink.
I looked at the MANY stamp sets I have and chose the sentiment from Feather Together as it worked well with the sketch. I also like the font that has been used in this set. The branch I’ve used is from Seasonal Layers Thinlit Dies – it ties my orchids and leaves together, I think…..
Here’s my card:
