Lovely Lily

I am thrilled and flattered to be the October Guest Designer for the the CAS Colours & Sketches Designer Team.  A weekly challenge boost to exercise your creativity 😀

capture-decran-2016-10-01-a-12-15-13The CAS Colours & Sketches #194 uses the colour scheme of Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Emerald Envy. I began by prepping my card base by adding Tempting Turquoise ink splatters and then debossing with a swiss dot strip folder.  A die cut white rectangle stamped “Une Pensée pour Toi” (A thought for you) was adhered followed by a fine frame in Tempting Turquoise card stock.  The leaves were die cut in Emerald Envy and the Lily was die cut in Melon Mambo and white vellum papers.  Clear Rock Candy Glitter was applied to the contour of the flower and the debossed areas on the card stock.  Finally a cluster of beads were added for the stigma.

I hope you’ll get inspired to join us for this month’s amazing Colours & Sketches, thanks for stopping by, HUGz Joannaimg_0947

  1. I like the mix of textures here, with the debossed dots, the textured cardstock panel, the glitter and beads, and the visual texture of the splatters. It all comes together on a very elegant card! Thanks so much for agreeing to be our October Guest Designer at CC&S! 🙂


  2. I really like the debossing – I never think to do that and yet here you show that it adds so much. It’s great to have you as the guest designer this month, hope that you enjoy the challenges. Liz x
