I loved the idea of creating a bright cheerful card and needed a challenge to match it with. When I saw the Free for all challenge over at SplitCoastStampers I knew I had to play along! The challenge was to create a card for winter with flowers. Although these don't bloom outside my window (I'm not a gardener!) I believe they are a wonderful example of the warmer climate bloomings!
This stamp has sooooo many possibilities! I've done this one in darker colors, in lighter colors such as this one, colored with pencils, other times with Copics.....the possibilities are endless I tell you!
The card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" is is set on a base of luscious yellow Bazzill paper. The stripped paper is from SU but was in the scrap bin so I'm not for sure what line it came from, but it fit perfectly on this creation!
The image was stamped with Momento London Fog ink and colored with Copics. For images such as this, I don't use a "magic" recipe of Copics, I just color and blend until it looks right ( pretty genius heh??) I added a little crystal Stickles to some of the flowers just to make them pop a bit.
I cut the image with the Beaded Circles from Spellbinders and added a bit of color to the outer circles with a little cream chalk ink. The outer circles looked lonely (uh oh....now I'm giving my card parts some emotions!!) so I added some pearl drops to each one. All this was mounted on top of a piece of lavender Bazzill paper which was cut using Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Squares Small die. A little yellow Martha Stewart ribbon added to the bottom and the card is complete!
Care to play along? Visit SCS and show us what winter flowers you are able to create!
Into the "Maine Mom" box this one goes. I'm sure she'll enjoy getting a card like this during winter time in Maine!
Hope you enjoyed! Until next time.
