UDI 33 Fabulous Florets Color Challenge

Today’s Utah Divas International Color Challenge included very bright colors Real Red, Poppy Parade, Regal Rose along with Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla.  I’m sure the design team will come up with some very interesting cards given that palette!

Large blooms from the Fabulous Florets stamp set seemed a perfect opportunity to merge these colors.  In the card shown below, I outlined the blooms with a Real Red marker, and then used an aqua painter to color the petals with ink from a Regal Rose Marker.


After adding additional color and highlights with both the Real Red and Poppy Parade Markers, dazzling diamonds were added to the center of each flower.

Three of the blooms were stamped directly onto the very vanilla card stock, and two were stamped onto a scrap of very vanilla card stock.  After cutting them out, they were pop dotted onto the card base.

The greeting was stamped with images from Vintage Vogue and Love & Care stamp sets, and popped onto the card too… and then the whole thing finished off with a double loop bow tied on my fingers, and attached with three mini glue dots.
