Ranunculus

Welcome to a very special celebration at Inspired by all the Little Things.  We are celebrating our 50th challenge and look at the gorgeous photo Leigh has chosen:


As part of the celebration, each of the challenge team as well as the weekly design team have invited a guest, so you have a wonderful feast of gorgeous inspiration over on the challenge blog.  My guest is the amazingly-talented TaeEun, who has created the most gorgeous card.

For my card, I was inspired primarily by the flowers and the little lights in the background.



I stamped the floral image onto a white top-folding card base then colored it with Copics.  I then sprayed it with some gold shimmer spritz and once it was dry, I die-cut the Big Hello die from the colored image.

I die-cut the same die 5 times from black cardstock and stacked it behind the top layer to create a camouflaged die-cut.

Finally, I finished the card with some Copper Penny Nuvo Drops.







Thanks for visiting.  Please take the time to check out all the fabulous inspiration from our design team and our wonderful guests.

Stamps:  Beautiful Bouquets:  Ranunculus (WP9)
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid
Cardstock:  White, Black
Dies:  Big Hello (MFT)
Accessories:  Copics, Heidi Swapp Gold Spray, Copper Penny Nuvo Drops

Cheers
Karren

Beautifully done!! The flowers are so richly colored yet the letters are bold enough (and pop so well on the black) that they stand out perfectly. LOVE the gold shimmer!
