It's a Collage of Color


Hello, today, I have a card for you that I made for the weekly sketch challenge going on over on my Facebook page and wanted to share. Once again, I ventured outside my usual Subtle colors that I naturally gravitate to, and came up with this. So, what do you think?
 

Supplies Used:

Basic Black 8 ½” x 5 ½” scored at 4 ¼” and folded for the card base.

Botanicals Garden DSP panel cut 2 ¾”x 5”

Basic Black layer cut 3 ¼”x 4 ¾”

Botanical Gardens DSP cut 3”x 4 ½” (I just turned over the DSP and used the backside of the same 12”x12” I had already cut for the 1st layer)

Basic Black layer cut 2 ¾”x 3 ¾”

Whisper White layer cut 2 ½”x 3 ½”

Basic Black cut 3 ¼”x 1 ¼”

Whisper White layer cut 3”x 1”

Scrap Whisper White to stamp and punch flowers from

Beautiful Bunch Stamp set

Butterfly Basics Stamp set

Petite Petals punch

Candy Dots (Neutral Collection)

Cajun Craze Ink

Mossy Meadow

Hello Honey

Snail Adhesive

Glue Dots

Stampin’ Dimensionals

 
I began by adhering the yellow pattern of the Botanicals Garden DSP to the right of the card base using Snail adhesive. I then took the second piece of the DSP and adhered that to the Basic Black layer and adhered that to the center of the card, then, I inked up the Honeycomb image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set, using Hello Honey ink, and I stamped off then stamped it onto my Whisper White panel. I did that a total of 3 times to fill the panel. I then used the fern image, also from the Butterfly Basics stamp set with Mossy Meadow ink. I stamped down with full ink then without lifting the bottom of the stem, I slightly pivoted the stamp getting a lighter and lighter effect. Then, using the Cajun Craze ink and the small flower from the Beautiful Bunch stamp set, I stamped a total of 3 images on to scrap Whisper White and punched them out using the Petite Petals punch and added them to the panel using glue dots and adhered the panel to the Basic Black layer and adhered that to the right side of the card again using Snail. I then stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Butterfly Basics stamp set with the Cajun Craze ink and adhered it to the Basic Black layer and adhered that to the bottom of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added three Basic Black candy dots.

 
I hope you enjoyed this card, please leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts. Have a wonderful day and see you Thursday!
