Beautiful vermillion peonies

Today I made a card for three challenges!  This card has been entered for the following three challenges:

  1. PP358 – A CAS Challenge from Joanne
  3. FUSION – Black and Orange Stationery

Here is the card: HLC_congrats

To make this card, I first stamped the image of the peonies with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I bought the stamp off Ali Express; I really love (large) flower stamps.  I then coloured it with the colour scheme for the “SSC159 SUMMER PETALS” challenge with alcohol markers from Deco Time.  Colouring was also the challenge for “PP358 – A CAS Challenge from Joanne”.  I wanted to give it a pretty golden to vermillion look, and it’s actually my second time colouring with alcohol markers.  I then cut it out.

Next I die cut a circle with this circle die from Triggered Emotions.  The paper I used was these thin “Designed CRAFT Paper” from Daiso which I picked up when I visited America.  At first I was going to use a “solid” circle, but then I thought of using a smaller circle, so I cut the smaller circle from the center of my larger circle.  But the smaller circle was too small, but I liked the frame I ended up making so I used that instead!

For the rest of the card, I followed the “FUSION – Black and Orange Stationery” sketch.  I used this new glittery patterned paper by Deco Time that I bought today.  And the light red strip of paper is actually origami paper, also from Daiso.  And finally, the sentiment is from a book of Vellum Quotes, also by Deco Time.  Everything is then glued down onto a 10.5 x 14.8cm white card stock.

This card was really fun to make, and the peach-ish colours are some of my favourite colour spectrum.  I also liked how I was able to incorporate 3 challenges with one card!  Thanks to all the wonderful people for hosting the challenges!
