Masculine and Feminin Versions

I'm so happy to be up as guest designer at Color Throwdown this week. 

When I came to do my card, I remembered the colours were grey, blue and orange, and went with a floral card. But when I went back to look at the inspiration photo, I thought I should have gone with something more in a clean graphic theme. So I have also made a masculine version.

I started with grey cardstock, and stamped Pinkfresh Studio Dainty Botanicals in grey and blue. Then I moved back to white cardstock and I stamped flowers from The Stamp Market Botanicals stamp set, and tiny flowers from Concord & 9th "Love you. Mean it." stamp set, in grey ink and coloured with copics. The solid leaves were partially inked and spritzed with water.

For the more masculine version, stamped up the stripes using Impression Obsession Thick Stripes in grey and trimmed. I stamped the triangle pattern from Ellen Hutson Wonky Backgrounds in blue. Stamped the "wheels" in SSS Apricot, and cut out. Popped everything up on foam.

  2. Oh my!!! Your floral card is so gorgeous! I love the color combination and how you combined the floral elements from different sets! The masculine version is cool as well! Thank you so much for joining us at The Flower Challenge!

  3. I just had to comment on your card, absolutely love your floral version. It reminds me of Japanese fabric and using a grey cardstock as the background makes the colour really pop. Its such a stunning card and its always fabulous to see you at The Flower Challenge!!

  4. WOW!!!! This card made my heart stop at TCT...then I was thrilled to see it in our gallery at Seize the Birthday! It's not my turn to pick winners this time...but if it was this would be a contender! Your second card is fabulous too! Thanks for joining the girls and I at Seize the Birthday!
