ID: MC Aug 11 - Hero Flower - Thinking of You card
5"w x 7"h

Created: August 27, 2011

One of the challenges I came across called for a colour combo of basic black, basic grey and a pop of red and allowed to use white or vanilla. I had this Hero Arts large flower already stamped on some white cardstock, and the two things just spoke to me.

I'm also using a sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design

The flower (large flower #CG134) was stamped with Versafine Black Onyx on white cardstock, colored with Inktense watercolor pencil "hot poppy red"  and glittered with Ritz micro fine glitter white and warm highlights. I then cut the flower out, cut between and curled the petals, added some Ranger black enamel in the center.

I used a warm deep textured grey for the main card. Lay down a piece of white picot lace and black cardstock. The lighter cool grey piece was diagonally scored on white cardstock, Distress Pumice Stone, direct to paper all over.

Stamped the sentiment with the black, embossed with Platinum embossing powder, over stamped the words using Perfect medium and embossing with white, leaving a small shadow on the letters.

Direct to paper with Peeled paint and Shabby Shutters, then sponged into all the white areas. Misted and dried.Run through machine with Tim's Mesh embossing folder, reverse side, hit the high points with Versafine Toffee, embossed with Copper embossing powder. Adhered my postage stamps. Added some rhinestone stars which I colored with a red alcohol pen.
