The Card Concept #53: Floral Mother's Day Card

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

There's a new challenge at The Card Concept - {Bright & Fresh}!
And we have a new designer...Rahmat! Read more about her in the TCC Blog."


Here's the inspiration photo/color combo:

This week we have a colourful inspiration story! Of course, you do not have to use these exact colours but they are there if you want! We want you to inspired by any part of the photo!

Feel free to use any of the styles of our team or better yet, share you own style by combining one or more of the styles. We want you to have fun and make a card in a style that you feel good about!

The styles are explained HERE.


Here's my mixed media card, inspired by the flowers and colors:

I kind of cheated...I used a pre-printed card, so a third of the work was done! =)
I added watercoloring and splatters (All-Purpose Ink/Imagine Crafts), plus more color using Copic and Distress Markers (Tim Holtz/Ranger) on the background. 
I stamped several flower images, leaf and the butterfly (Altenew) in black, then cut them out.
I watercolored the flowers, colored the centers with Distress Marker and added Mod Podge Dimensional Magic Gold. The flower on the left had additional coloring with Fabrico marker (Imagine Crafts). I also colored the leaves with Fabrico marker.
I colored the butterfly with Copic markers and added Mod Podge Dimensional Magic Gold.
Finally, I adhered the flowers and leaves. 
And I adhered the butterfly only on the body area, then the wings can be bent up a little.
