TSOT 551 - Circles of Flowers

Welcome to Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge 551!

This week, it is a choice of either the inspiration photos or the sketch - or you can do both! I chose to combine the two elements. 

Fitting four images on a card that was large enough to do what I wanted required making a slimline card. The sketch is intact but it is extended a bit. I began with a woodgrain background and used Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink to colour just the edges. 

The circles were die cut from gold foil and a white circle was also die cut to go behind the gold outlines. I use three Distress Oxide inks to blend blue backgrounds. Once those were finished, the stencilled flowers were added between the background and the gold circles with some parts of the flowers peeking out from the edges of the circles. 

A blue ribbon was attached across the card and the sentiment was added on top so it overlapped the yellow flowers. I brushed all the darker parts of the flowers with a clear shimmer brush and added clear Stickles around the flowers and on some of the leaves. 

Come and join us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday and show us how you interpret this week's challenge.

You have two weeks to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create!

  1. Alyson, what a gorgeous slimline card! Love the woodgrain background that allows your colorful flowers to shine. The addition of the shine takes the card up a notch! I'm sure it will be a great inspiration card for our participants!!! -Donna
