The Flower Challenge Reminder #58 - Use Spots or Stripes

Yep, back again with a reminder about our challenge over at The Flower Challenge and this month, we want to see spots or stripes! 

I used one on Tracy Evan’s recent release for Aall and Create, Tattered Florals and the designed to be distressed looking sentiment is from her Bring on the Sentiments set. I used white heat embossing and decoupaged the flower on kraft card with distress oxides in broken china  to colour and speckled egg through a stencil in the background. A doodled border, splats of ink and some Tim Holtz mica flakes on the flower centre to finish simples! 



  1. LOVE the blue stenciled stripes on kraft paper. Makes a perfect background for your gorgeous bloom, Cara! Beautiful shine from the mica flakes on your flower center! xx

  2. Oh my gosh!! I never thought of using colored ink to stencil on Kraft paper, this looks amazing, Cara, I'm going to give this a try soon.
    What a beautiful flower, it looks like a Black Eye Susan, love it in blue!!
    The mica flakes are a shiny and sparkly detail!!
    Stay healthy and safe.

  3. Oh wow, what a fantastic flower Cara! I would never have used blue against Kraft, but it looks absolutely fabulous!

  4. Love those soft stripes behind your fabulous flower, Cara.

  5. The pretty tonal blue looks fabulous with the kraft...A really beautiful and creative card x.

  6. How gorgeous and dreamy!!! I love the light blue on the craft base!

  7. This is just beautiful. I love your sparkle and splatter.
