It’s October 4th (October 5th in Australia) and a new challenge has started at The Flower Challenge! It is our 13th challenge and it means The Flower Challenge is turning one!!! YAY!!!
We are celebrating our first birthday challenge with lots of prizes !!! Stop by The Flower Challenge blog to see which awesome goodies are waiting for you :)! But before you leave, please take a look at my card for our 13th challenge : USE YOUR FAVORITE FLOWER!
Magnolia is one of my favorite flowers. What an elegant messenger of Spring!
I used Magnificent Magnolias by The Ton Stamps, one of our generous sponsors at this anniversary challenge! Thank you so much, Effie :)!
I have stamped the magnolias in Tattered Rose DI on some white cardstock and colored them using Prismacolor pencils. I cut them out using coordinating dies and set them aside. The night blue background was created with Indigo alcohol ink and rubbing alcohol on a alcohol ink cardstock. I added white splatters using Snow cap. After I tried several arrangements of magnolias I decided to use a larger cardbase than A2. The gray cardbase is 6″x 4.75″. As a frame for my alcohol ink panel I add a mat of white panel on the edges of which I adhered Adhesive glitter paper glossy fine silver. I glued the alcohol ink panel flat and slightly tilted on the gray cardbase. I then arranged my magnolias on it. I used foam adhesive to mount the flowers for some dimension.
As I didn’t want to cover my card with sentiment, I made a vellum banner using Basic Banners set by The Ton. I silver heat embossed the banner and the sentiment and cut it with coordinating die.
To finish off I added some dark blue and clear sequins.
We are so excited and looking forward to seeing lots of entries filled with gorgeous flowers in the gallery! Now hop over to The Flower Challenge blog for more inspirations! We have amazing guest designers celebrating with us too!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Hope you enjoyed my card!
