Sponged Tiger Lilly ~ CCMC413

Hello Stampers!  Another Thursday has rolled around and it's time again for Create with Connie and Mary!  This week it's a cool sketch.  There are limitless possibility with this one!  I'm so excited to see what everyone comes up with.....I know our designers have been very diverse in their samples and each one is extraordinary!

For my card I wanted to mimic a designer paper from the Serene Scene designer paper stack.  I've seen a few people using it and it catches my eye every time.  I used my Timeless Texture stamp to re-create the look.  I started by stamping the "wood" piece in stamped off Pool Party ink.  I then sponged on some Soft Sky, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and just a tad of So Saffron.  I also outlined the wood planks with a Soft Suede marker to make them look more realistic.  
I then turned to the flower.  I chose the one that I think resembles a Tiger Lilly.  I inked the stamp stem with an Old Olive marker and then the flower itself with a Pumpkin Pie marker.  After I had the image outline, I sponged on Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie in the flower and Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive on the stem.  After I fussy cut it out I added just a bit of Soft Suede ink around the edges of the entire thing and added some of the "freckles" that Tiger Lillies have. 
I layered it all on a distressed and sponged paper doily and a circle sponged with So Saffron, Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.  
I used a greeting from Cottage Greetings for my sentiment and stamped that in Soft Suede ink after I had distressed and sponged the banner.

I hope you'll have time to play along with us this week!  I can't wait to see all the creations!

  1. I'm in love with your 'wood' layer! What a fantastic recreation. I will be giving that a try for sure! A beautiful card!

  2. Jenny this is just lovely! I love the wood background - I shared it in a class recently and my ladies loved it - and Roger lilies after my favourite flower. I love the vintage feel to your card too - I find this so difficult to recreate, so am in awe of those who can do it so well. Really great!

  3. Just realised spell checker took 'tiger' and changed it to Roger???!!! Hope you know what I meant though!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous!! The wood plank background and Tiger Lily are works of art on their own, but put them together with the accessories and sentiment, and the result is spectacular!

  5. Wow! I thought the background was a piece of DSP! Very nice! Love the shabby chic/vintage look to this card!

  6. Wow...this is gorgeous! The Tiger Lily looks so real and I love how you did the background! Awesome job!

  7. Beautiful flower Jenny. I love the layers of the card. Love the soft vintage feel of it! :-)

  8. Wowee! What a beautiful card. Love the flower and your background piece is amazing. Definitely on my list to try.

  9. This is a beautiful card! It's just stunning! Love all the work put into it. Very, very pretty!
