Potted primroses

Yay, the end of another work week, and looking forward in having the next 4 days off. Weather is suppose to be somewhat not to bad, so Bill and I hope to get out and do some more birding.  We have been getting out over the last few weekends, so I will have some photos shortly to share with you.

For my card today, I'm using a Power Poppy image called Potted Primroses.   

I stamped the image onto some white cougar 100 lb cs using black memento and my Misti.  I find lately my memento ink pad must be breaking down, I keep adding ink but just doesn't get that nice dark crisp image that I use to, so with using the Misti, you can stamp over and over and you get a clean crisp image because it stamps exactly in the same spot every time.

I then coloured the image using prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol. I then cut the image out using spellbinders regal frame, left the die in place and sponged some antique linen ink around the outer edges.  Papers used are from Memory Box. I added a piece of a die cut to the right side of the image, I felt it just needed a bit of something. 

To finish off I added some sequins, lace and wink of stella clear.

This will go into my sale basket at work as a Mother's Day card.

Oh, how fun to see a card from you today, Pauline! And so pretty and sweet! Love this primrose set. Your coloring looks fantastic and love the design. So cool how you used the Woodland Oval. Definitely making a note to self on that! I'd love a MISTI, but really balk at shipping. Someday. Folks sure do rave about them. Have a happy 4 day Easter weekend!

Your little potted plants make a lovely trio Pauline. Gorgeous coloring as always. My Memento pad might be suffering from the same malady. I also have problems with it shedding fibers and leaving little squiggles around the edges here and there. :-( Looking forward to the new birding pics. Hugs!
