CC170 and SC180 Saffron Flower



Today I am home from work. I get panic attacks periodically and today is a doozy. I really needed to chill. So I am trying to relax doing one of my fav things--- stamping (and deep breathing).



Here is my card for this weeks CC170 and SC180 over at http://splitcoaststampers.com/. The color challenge is 'real red, regal rose and so saffron'--beautiful colors together!! The only color I didn't have was real red so I used purely pomegranate instead. I combined this with the sketch challenge and came up with this.

I sponged all panels, except pomegranate, with a combination of real read and regal rose chalks. I stamped the image on saffron in white and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then sponged the embossed image with a combo of rose red and pretty in pink inks. I stamped and repeated the embossing and sponging procedure again, cutting out the flower in the center and adhering it to the center of my first image with dimensionals. I stamped and embossed 'LOVE' 3 times, cut them to size, sponged them a little and adhered them to bottom panel also with dimensionals. I corner punched all panels, added them to the base and added a wee bit of ribbon under the flower, and a pearl brad to the center. I like it!

I hope you have an awesome day, and don't forget to smile a lot today!!:):):):) Come visit again soon! Denise
