The Flower Challenge #10 reminder


We're halfway through our current embossing challenge over at The Flower Challenge and so my teamies and I have created some more inspiration for you.
I used up the leftovers from my original card to make my reminder card. I had some of the card that I'd embossed with the Quilted Flower embossing folder left and so I used this on my 8x8 card, but flipped it over this time so that the debossed side was showing. I used some of the same card that hadn't been embossed above it and added a strip of red card to cover the join.
I still had some of the Stampendous Pretty Poppy flowers and leaves that I'd painted left over and so I arranged these on the card. I added some gunmetal stickles to the centres of the flowers to add some texture. I used an Elizabeth Craft die to cut the sentiment in black and red and then layered them up to give a shadow. Simples really. Don't forget to make flowers the focal point of your image and if you can add our cue card to your post that would great.

  5. Hi Cara, the poppies look great and love how you've arranged them. I wouldn't get too excited about the grapes as I don't think they will be very big but it's nice to get then anyway. I have a fig tree and it grows leaves like a mad thing but no figs yet but it may be to do with where it's planted but I still like it. Have a great weekend, Angela xXx

  11. Oh gorgeous and a clever idea to use the debossed side for the background. Love those poppies as well - so rich and colourful. xx

  12. Wow, this is stunning! Your flowers are so lush and vibrant, and the fresh green foliage really makes the flowers pop against the neutral background. What a great use of your leftover bits! Love the embossing pattern you chose, interesting but subtle and doesn't steal focus from the amazing florals! hugs :)
