Bright and Bold Flower

Good evening all.

Here is a card for 2 challenges: Crafty Catz Challenge #67 Flowers and CES Challenge #21 - Bright and Bold

I have to say that the yellow and red are brighter in real life than they are in this picture!

The main image, a glorious stamp from the Stampman, was stamped twice on glossy black card and embossed with gold powder. Both of the flowers were painted with Twinkling H2Os and allowed to dry. One flower was cut out and the card shaped before being layered on top of the other with Pinflair Glue.

The red card was randomly stamped with another poppy stamp from Elusive Images and embossed with clear WOW powder to give a watermark effect.

The sentiment, again from Elusive Images, was stamped and embossed in gold on glossy black card, cut out with a Nestie and layered onto a yellow scalloped Nestie shape and finally onto a glossy black Nestie shape.

To assemble the flower was layered onto yellow cad and the ribbons added on the 2 corners. This was bonded to the red card, which in turn was added to a layer of black and finally onto the A5 yellow base card. The sentiment was added on foam pads to give extra dimension to the card.
