It's Friday! You made it through another week! Give yourself a pat on the back. And that means that it is time for another challenge from As You See It Challenges. This week, it is a sketch challenge that is quite unique again. I had a lot of fun with it, using all sorts of flower images to create a Floral Fiesta!
- When I saw the dark border on the right of the diagram, I immediately thought of a floral pattern, hand-trimmed and mounted on dark cardstock, so that you could see the individual shapes of the edge flowers. It took me a couple of panels of this Park Lane DSP to get one with the fancy edges in a place that wouldn't be covered by the banners. I mounted it on Basic Black cardstock for the contrast and also because I love the Old Olive/Basic Black colour palette.
- As I searched for a shape like a wreath for the top panel, I came across an old set that I actually haven't used much lately. It's Daydream Medallions and I used the middle-sized one and stamped it in Old Olive ink, then used the the Floral Frames Framelits, which coordinate, to die cut it as well as a Circle Collection Framelit to cut out the middle.
- I used the Flower Shop Stamp Set to stamp the large flowers and the Petite Petals set to stamp the smaller ones and I punched them out with the Pansy Punch and the Petite Petals Punch respectively. They are mounted on the card front using dimensionals to create vertical dimension, after curling the petals upwards using my Bone Folder.
- The sentiment is from the Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamp set and it makes a great greeting considering all flowers in this card.
