Hello everyone. Hope your week is going well. I'm still enjoying my time off, I go back to work on Friday. I did some major purging of stamping supplies the other day. It just felt so good to get the Christmas stamps put away, and then I went through my stamps, papers, punches etc that I have not used in a few years and gave them to a couple of my friends who love to stamp as well. Some new goodies for them to play with! With purging, I came across so many images that I completely forgot about, so made a mental note that I need to pull them out and use them again.
With my room so tidy and my desk cleaned off, (love working on a clean desk) I decided to finish off an image I started to colour before the Holidays. I'm using one of the newest PowerPoppy digital images called - Winter Pick-me-up. I love this design, Marcella sure knows how to create realistic and loveliness all in one. This is what I came up with. I'm also entering this card into the Peep of the Week challenge.
After printing the image onto some Bekkett Expression 80lb weight, I then coloured the image with Copics. Once done, I cut out the image using spellbinders A2 tranquil moments die. Left the die in place and then sponged some SU Certain Celery around the image. I then layered this onto a piece of light green c/s, and then onto my base.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to add a sentiment or not. Sometimes it nice not to have anything on the front of the card, that way you can use it for many occasions. This time I chose to use a sentiment from the Geraniums Take Two set. For my ribbon, I used some white silk ribbon and coloured it with my copic marker #B66 (this was one of the colours that I used to colour the flowers) so it would match the flowers. Once everything was done I added some pearls to the four corners on the inside frame and used my wink of stella brush to add some glitter to the flowers.
