Color Challenge Flower

So, I subscribe to Kristina Werner’s blog and I’ve been waiting for her 50th Color Challenge with much excitement!  So, here is her challenge:

And here’s what I came up with:




I used patterns from MelStampz (which is amazing by the way, you should totally go check out all the free templates and tutorials!) and Mirkwood Designs.

Everything is hand cut (except the center circle is a 3/4 inch circle punch).  I sponged ink on each flower layer and attached them together after finessing the petals.  The design at the bottom is paper piercing/faux stitching and I think it just turned out great!  I don’t think I could have done that well with real stitching!

It seems like a fairly simple card since it’s plain white card base, but the flower is definitely worthy of center stage.  I just felt like anything else would be overpowered by the flower.

So, that’s it!  Let me know what you think and come back this afternoon to watch the afternoon quickie video!

Happy Stamping.
