Flowers & Framelits...


It's time for another fun ColourQ challenge, and this week's inspiration and colours are so pretty together...

I wanted to build a multi-layered flower and combine it with a fun frame idea I had played around with last week, so I ended up with this...

The flower was created by embossing the smaller images from Daydream Medallions on Real Red card with white EP, then I die-cut them with the matching Floral Framelits. I added another flower in between these (the script flower from Flower Shop punched with the pansy punch) and added a Soft Sky button in the centre. I added some leaves cut with the Little Leaves sizzlit die using Naturals White card, and I added some Dazzling Details to the leaves for a bit of sparkle.

The frame behind the flower was created by first die-cutting a piece of Pool Party cardstock with one of the Labels framelits, then a window cut from the middle with one of the deco labels framelits. This frame was popped up with dimensionals on the Whisper White panel. The inner part of the frame is a piece of Soft Sky card, cut with the same Deco Label framelit as the inside of the frame, then embossed with the Sale-a-Bration dotty embossing folder. This was then glued into the middle of the frame, and the flower popped over the top with dimensionals.

The sentiment is the only touch of Pacific Point - stamped with a sentiment from Express Yourself.

I used this week's Case this Sketch to help me (but admittedly, there's not much CAS about this card - apart from the white space maybe!)...

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Daydream Medallions, Flower Shop, Express Yourself
Ink: Versamark, Real Red, Pacific Point
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Soft Sky, Pool Party, Naturals Ivory
Accessories: Subtles buttons, rhinestones, White EP, Dazzling Details
