Good morning everyone! It seems like forever since I posted. I did not work on any cards over the Holidays, and then I had a hard time getting back at it this weekend. Although I did manage to create a card. I saw over on Power Poppy's blog the theme challenge for this week is "Winter Blooms". Well this is right up my alley, because I love flowers. So that kind of inspired me to get creating.
Today, I'm using Happy Crabapple from Power Poppy. I am also going to enter this into the challenge this month.
This was a quick card, will probably make more of these. I started with a 5.5 x 4.25 which card stock and sponged distress inks in the corners - spiced marmalade, fossilized amber, wild honey and a bit of picked raspberry. I then used my Misti to stamp the images. I'm glad I decided to use the Misti because the first impression stamp was a bit faint. I then cut this out using the scallop edge die from MFT die-namics blueprints #27.
I then used the prismacolour pencils in the same tones as the ink to add colour to the image. I added some sparkle to the blossoms using clear wink of stella pen.
For the sentiment I used Simon Says stitched banners die and PTI simple little things for the sentiment. Stamped in versamark then white embossed. I added some foam tape behind the sentiment to pop it off the card. I then added some sequins to finish this off.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a wonderful day. Another snow storm heading our way overnight, with snow, turning to rain, turn back to snow, possibly freezing rain - quite a mess!
