Time for another challenge & today I made a card for the CD Sunday Challenge where the theme this week is - Awash with Flowers.
I really wanted to have a change of style & I think I have managed it here. The base is a 5" x 5" card. Everything on this card is from the My Craft Studio Floriography CD. All the items on this CD are in black & white - I love it. So I selected quite a few items from it & pulled them into Serif Craft Artist to create the card.
I covered the card with the coloured square for the background & placed my chosen MCS background over it - having previously discovered they were transparent so my chosen colour showed through. Then I created the other shape & coloured that. But, before I did all that I had already chosen the central image & had brought it into CAP & coloured it with a free form paintbrush. It is a technique I have just tried & I can't stop using it. The coloured flower was then brought onto the background & I found another image on the CD of a corner group that matched my main image. I decided not to colour those but when I gave the corners a drop shadow it just added a slight tint to them. The main image I then ran through a couple of effects to give the embossed finish.
I think I tried about 6 different colours for the backgrounds & this one I favoured more than the others. Do click on the link above & see what everyone has been creating.
