Welcome to The Flower Challenge! This is the challenge that celebrates cards using floral images. Our challenge for October is ... 'Use a Shape'
It would be great if you could add our cue card above when entering our challenge. Of course most of all have fun!
As you have already noticed by now, we are happy to announce it's our 5th Birthday too! wow the time has gone so quickly. We hope all you PETALS have enjoyed taking part in all of our FLOWER challenges over the last 5 years. We have certainly loved seeing all your glorious floral cards in our gallery!
Anyway to celebrate we are giving away not one but 11 PRIZES this month. The prizes are all listed on The Flower Blog Challenge, they will be allocated at random to our chosen prize winners. A very big thank you goes out to all our kind sponsors (some who have sponsored us a few times already over the years) and also some of the DT are generously giving away prizes also.
Please can I ask that you leave your country after your name below your card when entering so the DT who are giving their own prizes to countries they live in (due to postage) can allocate prizes more easily. Example (Aileen AUS), thank you ;)
The fabulous Emily Midgett from Sixth Street Sundries is our Guest Designer this month and you can see her fabulous card at The Flower Challenge. You all know I love Emily's art and if you haven't seen it yet check our my previous post, where I coloured up a Tropical sketch.
Now onto todays card and this month its so simple : Add a shape -so add what you want in any shape or make a shaped card. Flowers are the only criteria, how cool is that.
I decided to colour this sweet digital image from Stamplorations and it comes laid out as you see it with a section to stamp what you want.
But I decided to cut out the shape itself, added to the front of a blue cardbase that I then cut to flow with the image and finished it off by adding acetate so the card could stand upright.
I love how it turned out. I'm sorry I cant give you the Copic colours for this one as it was coloured a little while ago.
Instead of stamping a sentiment I added this sweet sentiment that I die cut in silver glitter and the backing piece in vellum. I really love how it turned out. So thats my shape and now its time to go check out all those amazing cards from the Design Team and Emily at The Flower Challenge
