Compose a Card with Becky -Challenge 3





I am participating in the challenge that you can find HERE at Becky's blog. It was difficult to work with this color scheme but I do like how it turned out. Really out of my comfort zone. Even though there were specific requirements like white embossed flower on Raspberry Fizz and a flourish stamped on Terracotta Tile, it still took me almost 2 hours to complete this. The flourish really is there ~ guess it didn't photograph well. You can see it if you click on the photo for a larger image. First I experimented with several different flowers until I got one I liked. Then the process of cutting out the flower and leaves. I did enjoy the time crafting though.

Supplies: PTI (unless otherwise noted) Raspberry Fizz Mix, Spring Rain Bitty Box Basics, Everyday Blessings and Raspberry Fizz Bitty Dot Basics patterned paper, Terra Cotta Tile cardstock
Stamp Sets: Friends 'til the End, Fancy Flourishes & Signature Greetings
INK: Versamark, True Black and Tim Holtz Old Paper distress ink (for edges)
embellies: SU! white embossing powder, rhinestones, EK Success border punch, distressing tool

When I enlarged this to get a better view, I could see such detail with the embossing. Great job on this card. Love the image.

Very nice job on the challenge! Those colors look neat together, don't they? And I can imagine it took a bit of time to cut out the flower.
