The Card Concept #92

It's time for another challenge at The Card Concept.

I kept my card pretty true to the inspiration photo. The red flower against all that white space is CAS perfection so I went with it. I mixed two colors of Ken Oliver's Color Bursts - Alizarin Crimson and Orange - with a little water and then did ink smooshing onto watercolor card stock. After I heat set it I used my MISTI to stamp the flower with Versafine onyx black ink 3x to get a nice crisp dark image and cut it out with the coordinating die. 
The vellum piece is torn to give the appearance of curtains. I scored some lines in the card panel to appear like the blinds in the photo.
The sentiment is embossed with white embossing powder onto black card stock for some contrast.

How does this photo inspire you?

Very dramatic card, very subtle texture in the background. Love the red on white with a pop of black. Thank you for sharing.
