Hero Arts Color Layering Iris Thank You

Hey everybody! I hope you're having an amazing day. I'm so glad to be back here after what feels like forever. For the last little while I've been stuck in a tax/paperwork  black hole and have had so little time to get crafty. I colored this iris (Color Layering Iris from Hero Arts) way back in February and never had time to make a card with it. Over the next few weeks you'll probably see a lot of cards made from bits and pieces of cards that I started working on months ago.

I love this iris stamp set. It is a color layering set but I decided to use just the outline stamp and color it in with my copic markers. I have to apologize because since I colored this image in so long ago I cannot remember what colors I used. I can tell you that I used Cool Grays and a light violet for the petals of the flower. I had originally planned to color it in gray scale then decided to add just a hint of color.

I heat embossed my sentiment in white embossing powder onto black cardstock and cut it out. I had to cut the left side at an angle to tuck it neatly behind the leaf.

My background is sponged with Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose. Then I splattered it with water to add a little texture... then I splattered it again with shimmer spray. Then I cut the background using the Hero Arts Infinity Rectangle Dies and layered the front piece over black cardstock (also cut with the layering dies). I popped up the background and flower on foam adhesive to give the card dimension and to make the flower pop even more.

The final touch was to add clear sequins. You can't see it in the photos but the whole background of the card sparkles due to the shimmer spray I splattered onto it.

It's been a while since I've entered a challenge so I'm going to enter this card in the A Blog Named Hero: Clean & Simple Challenge.
