Pink Brick Wall

Hi and welcome!  Today's card covers a few different challenges.  I'm using the sketch from Verve as well as the colors from Color Throwdown for my card.  As it's a birthday card, I'm also entering it at Seize the Birthday (although no toppings this time).


This card has far more layers than I usually use, but it was fun to make.  I started out with a black card base die-cut with a stitched rectangle die.  I stamped a brick background stamp onto the pink panel using Cotton candy ink and adhered that to the card base after stamping the sentiment.

A Green Apple stitched circle was next then two tags - the pink one again stamped with the brick background.

The flowers were stamped and colored with my Zig Real Brush pens using pink for the leaves and orange for the centers.  The leaves are from MFT.

And that's about it!

Thanks for visiting.





Products used:

Stamps:  Lean on Me, Poppy Birthday (Verve), Brick Background (Impression Obsession)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Cotton Candy (SSS)
Cardstock:  Black, watercolor, Cotton Candy, Green Apple (SSS)
Accessories:  Pointed Flower die (Verve), Layered Leaves die (MFT), Zig Real Brush Watercolor Pens, Twine, Tag Me die (Reverse Confetti), Stitched Circle and Rectangle dies (Lil' Inkers)

Cheers
Karren

Such a beautiful color combination! Didn't like it much when I saw the color panel at color throwdown but it looks real stunning on your card. The black background makes everything pop.
