Asymmetric Flower?


**This is my second post of the day.  For my Moxie Fab/PaperCrafts post please scroll down or click here!**


Apparently I'm trying to drive myself mad in the photography department today with all these dark card bases.  What a nightmare!  I used the colours from the Play Date Cafe to complete my final entry for the Moxie Fab Card Design Handbook Challenges - the Asymmetry Challenge.  Not sure if it's actually asymmetric enough...  I really struggled with this one!  I'm pleased that I managed to make a card for each of the challenges though.  I'm hoping I can keep this momentum going.


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Pink) Bazzill, (Peach Parfait, Early Espresso) Stampin' Up

Stamps:  (Flower and leaf from To/From Petals) Hero Arts, (Sentiment from Simple Salutations) Market Street Stamps
Inks: (Early Espresso) Stampin' Up
Punch:  (Corner rounder) Marvy Uchida
Gems:  (Bon Bon assortment) Doodlebug
Copic:  (E49)

Love how you did the flowers and leaves on this card. I've got this set, and never thought to use it this way. The dark base makes the card so striking.

So very fun and funky! Love the patterns on those flowers--goes great with the color palette this week. Thanks for playing along at The Play Date Cafe!

You are the queen of rich colours - you always make them look so good! Love this card - fantastic use of that colour combination!

Lindsey said...

I like the question mark in your post title. :P I'd say you use asymmetrical designs often, so funny how much it would challenge you. Doesn't show here -- this is a very fine card!

Jocelyn Olson said...

LOL about the photographing a dark base--the photo turned out great. So did the card--it's definitely asymmetrical in a good way (not that hard on the eyes way). ha ha Great card!

Kudos to you for getting through all the challenges! I didn't quite make it, lol!

I love the look of this card! Kind of modern bohemian:) So cool and perfect for the color combo!
