A Coneflower Celebration - Just Add Ink #468

Just Add Ink has an alphabet challenge and this week it's the letter "C".  The idea  is to include anything that starts with the letter "C" in whatever I create.

For my project, the focus of my card is a flower known as a "Coneflower" with "Celebrate" as my sentiment. The coneflower was coloured, and the finished focal piece was adhered to a piece of Whisper White embossed with the Corrugated embossing folder .  This was added to a Crumb Cake card base.

The Coneflower focal image is from Frog's Whiskers Ink in Campbellford, Ont. and is coloured with water colour pencils and a blender pen.  It is die cut with a stitched rectangle die and matted first with Melon Mambo card stock and then with Crumb Cake.

Before matting it with the two card stocks, some heat and stick powder is used to add dazzling diamonds over the entire image.

The finished image with its two mats, is adhered to a Whisper White card front layer which has been embossed with the Corrugated Embossing Folder.  The card base is Crumb Cake card stock.

The sentiment "Celebrate You" is from Suite Sayings (retired) after matting with Melon Mambo is added to the lower image and card front - over the image using tombo glue, and on the card front with 2 dimensionals, one on top of the other.

The "C's" used on this card:
1.  Coneflowers
2.  Coloured with watercolour pencils
3.  Crumb Cake card stock
4.  Corrugated embossing folder
5.  "Celebrate You" sentiment

Inks:  Black Memento, Watercolour pencils, Versa Mark
Papers:  Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Melon Mambo
Accessories:  Corrugated Embossing folder, Dimensionals, Heat and stick powder, Dazzling Diamonds, Glitter gems, Stitched Rectangle Dies
