Flower Challenge Spring / Autumn

Its April which means its time for a new challenge over at The Flower Challenge! This is the challenge that celebrates cards using floral images. Our challenge for April is …..

Our Guest Designer this month is Trina P from Phamtasticdesign our October winner. Do check out her blog if you have a minute as she makes such fabulous cards. We also have a sponsor this month,Β  Bugaboo Stamps who will be giving a $12 gift code to our winner, (approx 4 digital stamps). They have a variety of beautiful and fun digital stamps!

For my card today I’m using Bugaboo 4 Block Tulip Square. I printed it out on Copic friendly paper and printed it so that the 2 blocks would measure around 3 7/8 x 8 7/8.


Once I printed my image, I used Copics to color it up. Here are my color combos just in case:

Flower – V0000, V01, V12, V04, V15, V17

Large leaves – YG01, YG03, G07, G09, G14

Smaller leaves – BG10, BG11, BG32, BG34, BG49

Lady Bug – R22, R24, R27, R29

Gray Shading – C1, C3, C5, C7

Yellow Background – Y000, Y00, Y02, Y15, Y19


Once I was done using my Copics, I used colored pencils for addition shading and details along with white gel pen and a black pen.

I cut the squares down and attached it to a black card base and traced the squares with white gel pen to add a little more detail.


I used a die from the Classic Word set from Pinkfresh and layered green glitter paper over vellum back to finish my card.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to check out the inspiration from the other design team members. Stay safe and healthy!
