Hi all. Well it's a dreary rainy day today, a good day to be working on some cards don't you think? It's a 3 day weekend for us Canadians, and the weather for Sunday and Monday is suppose to be upper 60's low 70's and sunny! This also concludes my weeks vacation - why do they always fly by so fast?!
I needed a birthday card for my friend at work. Wasn't sure what Power Poppy image to colour for her and I know I wanted to use my new Justrite die as well. So looking through my images I came across Planning for Magnolia set and it had this cute little flower sitting in a vase of water - so sweet.
I"m also entering this into the May challenge over at Power Poppy - May flowers - use your favourite floral image from Power Poppy. How can you just pick one! I have so many favourites.
Here is my card:
I stamped the image onto some white cougar c/s using black memento ink. I then coloured using prisma colour pencils as well as copics. I did a base coat using copics YG03 for the leaves and V01 for the flower. I then used pencils to add colour and depth.
I then cut out the image using Simon Says stitched circles. This fit perfectly over the center opening for the Justrite - garden circle die.
All background papers are from Basic Grey - Eva collection - another collection I have been hoarding forever!. My card base is a deep, deep purple. Layers were all cut out using Simon Says stitched squares.
To finish off I added glitter ritz to the flower, silk ribbon, and sequin.
