Rock Candy Flowers

Today's card used the (flipped) sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and the colors from Color Throwdown.




I flipped the sketch to suit the angled panel die-cut I had on hand.  I could have cut it by hand but, you know, where there's a die, why fussy cut :)

I white embossed the sentiment on the panel and die cut the flower and leaves from a NBUS set by Essentials by Ellen.  I wanted to lift the die-cuts somehow so decided to lay down a bit of glue on the pieces and drop them into some Distress Glitter.  It looks quite cool in real life.



Thanks for visiting.




Products used:

Stamps:  Keep it Simple:  Just Because (PTI)
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  White, Black, Wild Wasabi, Tangerine Tango (SU)
Accessories:  White EP, Blueprints 15 (MFT), Bold Blossoms die (Essentials by Ellen), Tim Holts Distress Glitter Clear Rock Candy

Edited to Add:  This card got a shout out at CAS(E) This Sketch.

Cheers
Karren

Well this is seriously stunning! I love the dramatic-ness (don't think that's a word, but oh well) of the black background, white sentiment and bright orange flower!
