Blushing Blooms

Hello everyone,
Sharing a CAS card today after quite a while. My hands being quite full lately, not getting enough time to craft or blog much.  Anyway, thankfully managed to squeeze in some 'me' time to make this card for a few challenges. This week's CASology- Week 87 where this week's cue card is BLUSH.
Here's my take on it:

The word BLUSH made me think PINK. Instead of colouring the blooms in pink, I involved some masking-stamping and masking-inking techniques to give a pink radiance to the blooms. The stamps are from 'Deep Red Clings' (the bigger flower) and Inkadinkado- Floral delight (for the smaller one). The bigger flower and the sentiment are stamped directly on the cardstock panel while the smaller flower is stamped on another piece of cardstock and stuck over it using adhesive foam. The sentiment is from Fiskars -All around quotes stamp set. Finally added a minimal amount of bling and mounted this panel on a white card base.

  6. Such a pretty card. And, I love how you masked and inked around that flower. Thank you so much for playing along at CASology this week.

  7. Jasleen, just look at all that glorious white space! I love how you decided to add the pink color around the flowers rather than directly applying it to the images themselves! The dimension you added with the trio of sequins and the popped up smaller flower is great too!
