It's my turn for the mid month post at the Stamping Sensation where all the DT have to make something in a colour that they don't like. I can't say that orange is my least favourite colour but somehow, it's difficult to make an orange card. It is actually a very pretty colour, but on my cards, it doesn't feel right. On this particular card, I love the orange flowers but I would change the background paper to something else. It has too much orange on it. I just have to keep trying until I feel comfortable with this colour
On my card I used stamp named Friendship Flowers from Sparkle N Sprinkle. It's stamped it two times with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Promarkers. I fuzzy cut entire image and on second copy I just cut the flowers. Flowers are popped up with foam tape. I added some sparkle to them with Diamond Stickles. On little butterflies I added Cotton Candy Stickles to the edges of the wings.
Flowers are die cut with Spellbinders Rose Creations dies. I used Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Distress inks to color all flower layers, then shaped them and assembled to form a rose. Leaves are die cut from leftover paper which was colored with Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles Distress inks and misted with Perfect Pearls Mist.
For the background I used my only orange pattern paper. It has been waiting in my stash for years. I pierced all pattern paper panels and draw stitching lines in between each holes with White Gel Pen.
