Blooming Garden

Hello and Happy Monday everyone.  Hope you had a good weekend. 

As promised I'm back today to share a new Penny Black image I purchased a couple of weeks ago at Paper Pickle.
As you know I love flowers, so when I saw this in the store, I knew I had to have it.

This stamp is from the set called Blooming Garden.

Image was stamped on 100 lb white card stock using black memento ink.  I then coloured with copics. After cutting out the image I sponged some distress antique linen while the die was in place.

For my base card I cut 2 pieces using grand labels twenty-three die, and then I scored one of them about 1/2 from the top, then applied glue to the 1/2 piece and adhered to the front of the card.

Papers used are from Kaisercraft - Remember Me.  I thought the paper was a perfect fit for this image, being that it had some embossed poppies in the corner.

Finished off with some red seam binding ribbon, glitter and pearls.

Copics used: R12, 20, 24, 29, 89, G43, 46, 94
Inks: black memento, distress antique linen
Dies: SB skinny ovals, floral ovals, grand labels twenty-three
Paper: Blush blossom, river rock, cougar white, Kaisercraft
Extras: glitter, pearls, seam binding ribbon, bow maker

Have a wonderful day!

Hold me back, it's so gorgeous! The paper and image look like they were made to go together. Beautiful coloring, and love how you applied the glitter. The very rich, deep red bow is the perfect accent. I like your method for putting the two shapes together for the card base, too. I'm going to try that next time!
