Well, that's what it seemed like, anyway. Hello, everyone. Today's ways to use it challenge on SCS was layered embellishments. I wanted to combine it with a challenge in the Gina K forum for a birthday card for Gina.
Pink is not one of my favorite colors, so I was working a bit out of my comfort zone on this one.
I actually was working around the crocheted flower. I used the two leafy stamps from Botanical Dreams. I stamped the narrow branchy one several times on the white card stock and colored with colored pencil. Then I stamped the broad leaves on some scraps and colored with colored pencil and gamsol and cut out.
I punched several leaves from certainly celery card stock with a Martha Stewart punch and sponged the tips of the leaves with old olive. And then I punched lots and lots of ferns (another Martha Stewart punch) from pixie pink card stock. I really didn't want everything green with just a small pink flower in the center, so the addition of pink here made sense. I sponged these with pink passion ink. I just kept adding the ferns until it looked pretty good.
The crocheted flower is backed with a retro flower punch and some bits of ribbon. A pink button on top completed the pile of embellishments.
