It's time for a new Color Challenge and this week Pam is hosting! She has chosen the combination of Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and White with a dessert option to add rhinestones. For my card I'm combining the Color Challenge with the current Sketch Challenge.
I decided to use one of my favorite Stamping Up stamps, Birthday Blooms, coloring the stamped image with Copic markers in colors similar to the Challenge Colors. White gel pen was added to the flower stamen, then it was fussy cut and added to a white die cut circle. For the background, two yellow Distress Inks were blended in an ombre fashion, splattered with water, pearl acrylic paint and white gouache, then when it was dry, die cut with a stitched rectangle die. I used a border die from the Flourish Thinlits to represent the diagonal piece in the sketch. It wasn't long enough to reach from corner to corner, so I strategically cut it where it knew it would be covered by the circle then adhered it to the background. The circle was added along with a sentiment, then the rhinestones were added to finish things off.
Thanks so much for looking and I hope you'll be able to join the Color Challenge this week!

Stef, oh, where to start? The coloring on your flower is beautiful, love the layout with the diagonal (clever of you to extend it!), love, love, love the background with the ombre shading and splatters. Kudos on the great photography, too, with the markers and paint peeking out behind the card! You are a true artist, and I love seeing your work!
