The Flower Challenge #21 'Use a Previous Challenge'

Hi there friends, I hope all is well in your world today ;) It's time for another challenge over at
'The Flower Challenge' and this time we want you to 'Use a Previous Challenge'. You can see all of them if you go to our blog and look at the top tab there. Also say which challenge you are basing your card on please.

I have gone with Challenge #14 and 'CAS', being a lover of all things CAS it was an easy choice for me ;) I made a card a while ago then bought some new stamps and just had to use them on my card. So I am sharing two cards again this time. 
Anyway do come and have a peek, we hope you will all be inspired by the Design Team's cards and join in our challenge too ;)

ps. I have added a privacy policy to my blog also re- GDPR. It's a real pain isn't it, I know you all leave comments and anyone can see them. Your choice of course if you want to remove them and cookies too. I am just doing exactly what I always did and leaving comments for others as always. All this fuss  and faff and I think we will just do what we always did !

Enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)

Peony card

 I made an A6 tent fold card then made a watercolour panel slightly smaller than the top piece.I stamped and embossed my flower and then watercoloured it. I embossed my sentiment on black card and added it to my panel. A few prills were added to my flower centre and a scattering of sequins completed my card.
Roses card
Roses, Flower Challenge, Clearly Besotted, CAS
White Linen card
Watercolour card
Silver sparkly card
Clearly Besotted 'Thanks a Bouquet' stamps
AltENew Inline Alpha dies
TH Distress inks
 I made my card base then another panel for the front. I stamped my flowers then overstamped with my vase stamp. Then I coloured my flowers and vase and used a Promarker to add some shadow below the vase. I cut my sentiment and added a bit of inking before adding the sentiment to my card.

Please add our cue card below when entering our challenge ;)

Two most beautiful cards, love that big bloom done in a glitter embossing powder so beautiful. Then the vase of flowers so delicate and I love that font the Altenew alphabet is done in. Every time I think I have enough I see something else that just cries out to me and I so want to stop shopping but that alphabet and the vase of flowers and the bloom are all so beautiful.

No I will be strong and just admire your beautiful cards. I willlll

Both cards are such gorgeous CAS designs with stunning coloring! The embossing for the peony on the first card and sentiment on the second just adds such nice glittery goodness, love it!

Oh my friend, I also apologize for not coming here sooner but, the weather has been really nice,(although today has been raining) and the grandkiddos are on Summer Brake so, it's a house full of them almost every day.
I adore your card Vivien, the glittery embossing powder makes this amazingly beautiful flower shine, your water coloring is superb and the sentiment white heat embossed on black card stock makes a statement on it's own.
Gorgeous as always my friend.

TaeEun said...

Beautiful CAS designs as always. Vivien! The loose coloring makes the CAS design more artsy!
I really love the green touch behind the hi die cut on the second card!!!

Bobby said...

Whether big blooms or small your coloring of them is beautiful. Viv.
