Ornate Style Colour Challenge

Hello and welcome! Today I want to share with you the project for this week’s creative challenge. I used the Ornate Style stamp set to meet the Colour Challenge for week #11.

Ornate Garden Stamp Set

These flowers are perfect for the colour combo of the week: Magenta Madness, Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party.

Creative Challenge #11 Project

Card Stock Measurements:

  • Magenta Madness card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
  • Pool Party cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Basic Black 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
  • Whisper White measures 5″ x 3-3/4″ for the front, 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the insert
  • Pear Pizzazz scrap large enough for the floral image

Ornate Style Colour Challenge Card Steps:

Using Tuxedo Black Memento ink I stamped the large floral image on the centre of the Whisper White cardstock and onto the scrap of Pear Pizzazz. Next I coloured the beautiful flowers using my Stampin’ Blends; Magenta Madness, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight.

From the image stamped on Pear Pizzazz I fussy cut all of the leaves. Using Multipurpose liquid glue I attached the leaves on top of the uncoloured leaves on the card front. Once the glue dried I embossed the Whisper White piece using the Scripty 3D embossing folder.

After adhering the Pool Party, Basic Black and Whisper White stamped pieces together I finished it off with some ribbon. I wrapped a piece of Black Glittered Organdy ribbon across the bottom and then tied a cute little bow and adhered it with a glue dot. This ribbon adds texture and bling all at once… love that!!

I hope that my weekly Creative Challenges are helping to motivate you to spend a little time in your creative space each week. I am looking forward to seeing all of the projects made with this week’s Colour Challenge!!

Thanks for popping in today!! Take care, stay safe and be creative!!
