House of Cards - March Challenge

WOW - it is really March the 1st? Where did February go? Heck, wasn't it just Christmas? I can't believe how fast the days are flying by. Well, if it's March 1st, then it must be time for a new challenge at House of Cards

MARCH 2017
Make a Scene and/or Colors

Here's my card

I chose to use the colours (well, the bottom four) to create my card. This was the first time I created a background using stamping, masking and colouring. I used Simon Says STAMP Wild Beauty stamp set. I stamped the outline of the flower and also created a mask of that flower. Then placing the mask on the outline, I stamped both branches of leaves. I removed the mask and then stamped the solid flower with yellow. I wasn't sure what to do about a sentiment. I couldn't figure out "where" to place a sentiment. I was going to leave the card without a sentiment. Then, I decided to try stamping the sentiment on vellum with silver embossing powder. Here''s a close-up.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Color Layering Bouquet.

Won't you join us at House of Cards this month? Either create a scene or use the colours of the photo. We'd love to see your work.
