The Flower Challenge #24 - Anything Goes


Yep, it’s everyone’s favourite over at The Flower Challenge this month as our theme is “Anything Goes”
We're also super excited that we have an amazing new member of our design team and even more exciting we have a fantastic prize for this month's winner.
I might have been very naughty when Stamps by Me were on Create and Craft recently, which resulted in my craft stash pile growing ever larger. I just loved the combination of stamps and large die plate and so picked the "Enjoy the moment" stamp set and co-ordinating die.
I die cut the panel first and then stamped in versamark onto the diecut using my misti and then heat embossed it in white. I then settled down with my polychromos pencils and enjoyed colouring it in. I faffed about for ages deciding on what to put behind the die cut, but eventually decided to use kraft card again and 1mm foam tape to add dimension. I slightly regretted the foam decision when I realised how many fiddly bits there were though! 
I wanted to add a sentiment and so heat embossed the LOTV sentiment on a strip of vellum and then wrapped it round the panel and secured it with red liner tape. I took a 5x7 card bank and trimmed the height down slightly so that there was an even border all the way round the panel, which I glued into place.
As ever the DT will be back halfway through the month with some more inspiration for you, we can't wait to see your creations, but please take note of the following as we hate having to disqualify an otherwise amazing project. 
  • Please don't forget to use your Florals as always and as the MAIN feature on your card.
  • Only 6 other challenges allowed as well as our own.
  • Also please take a few minutes to read our rules in the tab at the top of our blog as you may miss out on winning a prize if you don't follow all the rules.

  2. So beautiful Cara! I love that stamp and I’m lucky we don’t have create and craft in this country as I’m sure I would be broke! LOL. Your colouring is beautiful, thanks for the inspiration.
