One can wish that springtime is just around the corner, can't I? We missed the major snow storm that New York and Eastern USA received today, but we have one coming our way on Thursday. I'm sure it's not to the magnitude that they received, but as far as I'm concerned snow is snow! Roughly 2 more months till spring! yeah!!!
Keeping on the theme of flowers which I have been colouring up as of late, I pulled out one of my Power Poppy stamp sets. I see that Marcella's design team is showing some sneak peaks of her next release this week, and before I get so overwhelmed with her new images I though I best get some of my uninked stamps inked up. I'm using one of the stamps from the Springtime Love sets. I am also entering into this weeks Peep of the Week challenge.
Image was stamped on white 110 lb cards stock using black memento. I then coloured using copics (shown below). I then cut the image out using spellbinders labels #14, left the die in place and lightly sponged some SU almost amethyst. All designer papers are from MME - Lavender 6x6 pack.
I cut a circle (wood grain) out of one of the designs from the pack which was layered onto a butterfly die cut, cut from PTI - sweet blush.
Designer paper was cut down to 5 1/8 x 5 1/8 and then layered onto a piece of SU almost amethyst c/s. Added a piece of lace as well as one of the cut off ends of the dp, and used the flip side. Added some stitching around the edges. From the other cut off end I cut a flag banner and adhered to the top left corner.
To finish off I added a seam binding ribbon bow, which I coloured using some white seam binding and copic B63. I used the butterflies from the butterfly circle die ( I also cut one from the almost amethyst c/s, but opt to go with the soft blush) and added some pearls. Finished cards size 5.5 x 5.5.
