Reminder Post for The Flower Challenge Blog #48 Colour Brown & Pink


So its time for the reminder card for the challenge using Brown & Pink.
Again I have gone with pink for the flowers and brown for the leaves and vines.

This is another image from Bugaboo, I fell in love with this image the minute I saw it. I lightened the image in Photoshop this time and decided to make it long enough to use in a slimline card design.

You are looking at my first attempt at a slimline card. I have purchased a couple of different dies from a few companies trying to find ones that included different sized rectangles which is what I have used here. I loved that I could cut the rectangle full or the outline which is what I did with the pink layer.

The largest cut, the pink and white layer I have found that I cannot get a clean cut with my Big Shot because of the slight curve at the tops of the plates so I need to cut most of it, then take out of the Big Shot and move forward so the end will cut properly. I assume there are bigger (longer) plates that I can purchase but as I just bought 3 sets of plates on special I will make do. I do think it is disappointing the companies have done this as its expensive enough keeping up with the Joneses crafting wise anyway.


Anyway back to my card and this wonderful image. I coloured with copics this time going for very light pinks in the RV range. I can see myself using this image quite a bit more, makes me think of lace and delicate embroidery.

Finished off with a silver glitter diecut 'Happy Birthday.

Thank you so much for coming to look, now its time to go check out the rest of the Design Teams makes for this month at The Flower Challenge Blog

Well if this is your first attempt at slimline, I hope there's a second and third and fourth! Absolutely brilliant.

Nailed it Aileen, the beauty and balance of your card is perfect! I am yet to make one, I used to make a lot of cards to fit into a DL envelope (business size because they were normal price to post) but I am thinking these must be a little smaller... I haven't officially checked out the size of them yet lol.

It's great that the slimline cards have more space for more flowers :) ! Yours is so beautiful! I just love that you kept everything so soft!

Good for you for jumping on the slimline bandwagon, Aileen. Those flowers were meant for that type of card and your coloring really brings them to life.
