My kind of Wonderful - Challenge Inspiration

Hi my dear crafty friends, Susanne here to share more details about my card that was inspired by our current challenge.

During this month, we have a photo inspiration challenge. You can make anything using die cuts from Die-Namites and let it be the STAR of your design. You can use these combined with colors, shapes, patrons, pattern papers, stamps, paints, stencils, etc. 

I used a bunch of dies from Die-Namites to decorate this card. By the way, I have a 15% discount code for you to use with your next order over at the Die-Namites Dies Online Store. Use susanne15 during the checkout process.
Spring Doily DN-1159
Large Ivy DN-1171
Heart Branch DN-1039
I tried to incorporate flowers, the arrangement and the colors from the inspirational image. The big flower in the middle is cut with the Silhouette Cameo. I cut the beautiful Spring Doily out of a patterned paper that had some shades of blue on it. To get a little amount of pink I decided to color the lovely hearts from the Heart Branch with water-soluble crayons. The Large Ivy is cut out of white cardstock. For a high contrast and also to follow the theme I created a brown mixed media background. I used embossing paste together with a stencil from ARTplorations to get some texture. While the paste was still wet I added some Fran-tage aged ochre embossing enamel and melted this with my heat tool. After that I used Art Sprays from Marabu to color the background. The embossing acts as a resist. My sentiment is a STAMPlorations stamp, I embossed it with Ranger gold ultra fine detail embossing powder. I cut the banner by hand and distressed the edges.

You have still time to enter the current challenge! Our Top Winner (randomly selected from the Top 3 Favorites) will receive a $25 voucher!
