Bold Botanicals

It's my day over on my shop's blog today and as we've received a lovely box full of the new release from Papersmooches this week, then that's what I've been playing with and my card today was inspired by the challenge at CASology where the cue word is bold.  So I took some of the blooms from Botanicals 1 and used them boldly!

I stamped and embossed 3 of the blooms into a little cluster in bold black and then used 3 bright distress inks to blend the background.   Simply matted onto black to emphasise the bold colour contrast and then with a banner sentiment featuring the gorgeous new scripty sayings embossed in white.

There are almost endless possibilities using the two bontical sets and they are really dramatic in black!

As the challenge on the Papersmooches Sparks challenge this week is "anything goes" then I'm going to join in the challenge with this card too


  1. Your card is so elegant. I love the background and the flowers just pop against it, as does the sentiment. So pretty!!

  2. Lovely silhouette with the vibrant bg!

  3. I always love a black silhouette against yellow and your graduated background is beautiful! Vicky x

  4. This is gorgeous! I love the background you created with the distress markers- so, so cool as a backdrop for those bold botanical images. Thanks for playing along with this week's SPARKS challenge! :)
