Baroque Thoughts (Color Throwdown 43)...


To view an image up-close, please click on the photo.

I have been in a bit of a card-making frenzy, as this is my third card this week! I couldn't resist the Color Throwdown, as it called for colors I don't often use. The Splitcoast Stampers Wednesday Card Sketch was a good match, so here is my (I swear) last card for the week. Here I used the Faux Dry Embossing Technique and a little paper piercing. Some foam dimensionals popped up the blossoms on this "baroque" bouquet.

This is beautiful---using the baroque stamp as a flower stem and leaves with the dimensional flowers is a fabulous idea. And the colors are beautiful together!
