The Flower Challenge 4th Birthday

Welcome to The Flower Challenge! Our challenge for October is . . .

It’s our 4th Birthday too!

Thank you all for your support and particpating in our fun challenges. This month we are being sponsored again by the amazing Alex Syberia, she designs such fabulous digi images. Alex is kindly giving us a coupon for $10 to one of our lucky winners to use in her store. Also ‘The Flower Challenge’ is giving away 6 other prizes to our chosen winners also, see all the prizes listed on the Flower Challenge blog.

For my card today, I’m using one of Alex’s designs called Sweet Gardenia. I love this image and decided to print it out large with lighter lines to do some watercoloring.

I love this gorgeous digital image and the fact that I can make the flower as big or small as I need. For my flower I used Prussian Blue and then used Quinacridone Pink for the background.

Once my image was dry, I stamped the Pinkfresh Sentiment and heat embossed it in gold.

I then used the Altenew Half Tone dies on my panel to add some circles from gold paper.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the beautiful cards from the design team. Have a wonderful day!

  1. What a stunner this is, I think I would have to say my favourite from this challenge. I went and purchased this image and I really hope to achieve the same look as you have done. So I’ve saved your card for inspiration. xx

  3. Hello Ericka: I’m often intimidated by large flowers and admire anyone who can create such beautiful cards with them, and you did just that with this gorgeous card, colored perfectly, with that lovely loose watercolor look and adorned so perfectly and so elegantly with the golden circles.
    Beautifully done!!
