WCC#208 Charlotte's "All About Occasions" Challenge

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Charlotte is our hostess this week with an "All about Occasions" challenge.

I had fun trying out an older technique that I saw over at Splitcoaststampers... called Faux Pressed Flowers. 

I started by die cut the flowers with a Couture Creations "Geranium" from yellow printer paper.   I sponged the flowers with Altenew inks in Sunkissed, Orange Cream, Autumn Blaze and Firebrick and then layered them up together.   Next I used Altenew Just Green and Hunter Green inks to stamp the Penny Black stamp "Magnolia Rhapsody" and stamped the sentiment from Altenew "Sohcohtoa" set.  I glued the flowers over top of the branch.  The next step is to run the card panel through the Cuttlebug with an embossing folder.  The one I chose is "Zane" by Couture Creations.   I finished by layering onto some orange card before putting onto a white base.  A Pale Gold nuvo drop onto the flower centres finished off the card.

Come join in the fun and make a card for an occasion.  Check out the projects that the artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created then take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.  You have until Mondays at 5 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (Tuesdays at 1pm NZ time) to link up your project.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
