Celebrations Challenge at Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog

It is Thursday and that means it is time for a new challenge at the Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog.  This week's theme challenge is Celebrations.  Our sponsor is Sheepski and if you enter you have the chance to win 2 images from the shop.  

I used digi stamp Gerbera Daisy to create my card.

Celebrations Card Recipe

The first thing I did was figure out how to make my image gray instead of black before I printed the image.  I found I could do that in word.  Once printed, I dipped one of my makeup brushes in gray ink that had been mildly diluted with water and flicked it on my flower.  I did the same with some Oxide Candied Apple ink that had also been diluted with water.  The gray and pearl 'drops' on my card are Nuvo drops.  By the way if your Nuvo 'drops' look like chocolate chips - store the bottles upside down.  You will be amazed at the difference it makes.  I also added a couple gems, but used the pearl Nuvo drops to attach them and I think that took away some of their sparkle.  The 'celebrate' word is a die from MFT and I cut that out using black card stock and brown (I didn't have black) fun foam.  I glued the 2 together so my word has some elevation on the card.  I plopped the card front on a red mat and then on a card base and there you have it.  I think next time I will make sure my flower is further up and place my word a little lower so as not to hide any of that beautiful Gerber Daisy.
