ILWS colour challenge representing fireworks

A new month and so a new set of challenges. Our colour challenge over at In Love With Stamping this month represents fireworks:

Black, red, orange and yellow

Although I've used a couple of stamps for this card they only provide a very subtle effect and it could just as easily have been made with only punches.

Stamp set: Delightful Decorations, Punch Potpourri (Level 1 hostess)
Cardstock: Basic Black, Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight
Punches: Scallop Trim Corner, Ornament, Boho Blossoms

The card blank is a 5" square of Basic Black. A mat of Daffodil Delight was adhered direct and then another layer of Basic Black was punched on all four corners with the Scallop Trim Corner and adhered direct. I stamped the spotted ornament from the Delightful Decorations set onto Whisper White card with Real Red ink, punched with the Ornament and then cut the point from the bottom of the bauble to make the vase. This was adhered direct. The flowers from the Punch Potpourri were stamped in the corresponding ink onto Real Red, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight card and punched with the Boho Blossoms. Each of the flowers was popped up on a dimensional and arranged in a firework burst around the top of the vase.

So you see - Delightful Decorations and the Ornament punch aren't just for christmas!

Thanks for stopping by.
