I'm not on the design team for Colour Dare this week (I do even challenges) but I really liked this colour selection of Colour Dare Challenge for #533 so I wanted to make a card using these colours. I chose to use all 5 colours AND I wanted to join the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Sketch 509. So to get both challenges into one card I created a card below.
Firstly I pulled out my Stitched Lattice Background Thin Cuts
to get that background shape as shown on the sketch.
I pulled out all my inks that match the challenge and I didn't have Avocardo ink so I grabbed a similar coloured Distress Oxide ink green colour (I think its currently unavailable or retired).
Then I stamped the different coloured flowers onto White cardstock and the leaves onto the Linen cardstock. I started with stamping Linen ink on Linen cardstock leaves but they are too light so I used the green distress oxide instead.
I used the linen offcuts to stamp.
Then I stamped the differnet sized flowers in the different coloured inks - Nectarine Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad, Capri Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad, and Glacier Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad. Then I fussy Cut them out. I used my scrap white daisy too.
I arranged the flowers how I liked them and then stuck them all down and added the linen cardstock leaves behind as well.
Then to finish the sketch I added 3 Bitty Sparkles at the top near the sentiment and then 3 below near the bottom leaf. I didn't include the ribbon as it seemed like too much on this card.
