AAA Cards Challenge #143: One Corner + flowers. With Video

This fortnight our Sponsor is Uniko and my card is heavily inspired by a card Beverley (the Uniko owner) made last year for Remembrance Day.
It is a bit early perhaps, but I thought these stamps and our challenge and the optional twist just called for this card. I didn't look up her card, I made it a bit as I remember it and also to fit our challenge.

The sentiment I've printed onto the cardbase, I've used Photoshop for this, but Word or alike will also work of course.
Then I used the biggest solid flower from the Uniko Style set and stamped it with Memento Love Letter red ink.
Heatsetted it to be sure and then used  Black Soot Oxide ink for the centre. I Versafine inks or
a black heat embossed dot would also work.
thought it would be nice and opaque, instead of the Memento black, so it would layer better, but of course

Then I watered down a little of the Memento red ink and  covered the cardbase to expose only the right lower corner and splattered a bit of a poppy field. Luckily the red turned a little pink, due to being watered down I suppose. Red splatter is very dangerous, it can looks like a crime scene. I didn't add anything else, black splatter or gold would also be cool, but as a CAS Challenge, we like our uncompromised empty space :-D

It literally took only 10  minutes to make this card, so perfect for mass production, you can use the flower in different colours and add a different sentiment to fit any occasion.

  1. Stunning simplicity! And to be honest red splatter is totally appropriate in this case.

  2. A stunning remembrance card. Beautifully CAS!

  3. Love how your beautiful red flower pops. Bright and cheerful. =) Tracie
