CDAC #16 Camelia

It’s Round 16 of the Progressive Challenge at CDAC  and for this round

Something’s In The Air

We have some lovely mages from some fabulous creators. Team A have the pleasure in bringing you some gorgeous samples for the images for this round.

My card is using a fab image called Camelia from Wax Fruit Company


When I first saw the image I wasn’t sure what a Camelia looked like so did a little Google search and soon realised it is one of my favourite flowers but didn’t realise what it was or how many varieties of it there are. I hope the colours I have chosen do this gorgeous design justice.

I have used the sketch from the latest challenge at A Gem of A Challenge and it allowed me to use lots of papers from the Summer Bloom collection by Papermania.  I used the soft green spotty paper to bring out the colour of the background on the image. I coloured with pinks and did lots of shading and blending around the petals. 

I used a metallic gold Promarker for the stamens and added spots of Stickles gold glitter glue to the ends do they popped off. I used a Nestabilities die for the centre panel and Martha Stewart lattice and doily punches on the papers.


If you have taken part in the last challenge you will be receiving your images to work with for this part. If however you didn't enter all is not lost. For the paltry sum of only $1 you can buy back into the challenge and you will receive the images.
