Peach flowers for ODBD’s Color Challenge – Join and Win

The month our first challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs is a color challenge! The color palette is stunning and I was very inspired when I created my card.

I used a homemade stencil to apply pigment ink mixing green and white to get a very soft hue and before the ink dried I heat embossed it with pearlescent powder. Using a brush I splattered a bit of watered down shimmery Iridescent Tangel paint on the white layer I die cut with the largest frame from Flourished Star Pattern set.

I used a different technique to create my flowers this time. I shared a tutorial before using the Aster dies but this time they look different, meaning fuller and with lots of texture. I colored the ends of the petals with the same paint with which I splattered the white layer.

I put a clean bouquet together on the top left side of the card using flourishes, leaves, ribbon, pearls, rhinestones and a vellum tag on which I stamped a beautiful sentiment, which I heat embossed in copper brown. I mounted the embellished layer on a green mat and mounted it all on a white card base.

This card is so shimmery and the colors look much prettier in real life. As I mentioned before, I enjoyed making this card a lot and I hope I have inspired you today to join us and share your creation with us at ODBD.
