Hello again bloggers. I have a card to share today that is out of the box for me, sort of. I didn't do a Copic colored image on it. Can you believe it? this is my version of clean & simple. if you know anything about my cards, believe me, this is as CAS as I can get!
I had stumbled on the Heartfelt Creations web site a while back & watched a few of Emma Lou Beechy's videos and I was hooked. Oh my, the gorgeous things you can make with these flower stamps & die sets. I ordered it at Picture This and also a product from 7 Gypsies called Glimmer Glaze that coats the petals & just gives them a slight shimmer. This one is silver & I have now ordered three more colors. Imagine that. :-) This floral set is the Open Vintage Floret PreCut Set & matching Spellbinder die Vintage Floret. You stamp first giving them the stunning veins on the petals and then cut them out with the dies, mold them a little with a stylus & assemble them into these breathtaking blooms. Making paper flowers is one of my favorite things to do so this was right up my alley. I had started out thinking a black & white card but when I placed the flowers next to the stamped image (an old Thomas Kincaid stamp) I noticed a pale aqua cast, so I improvised my design by adding colored cardstock and a bit of shading with my Copic BG000 & 0000. I distressed my papers with my new Zutter toy, added some ribbon & buttons, and a dash of twinklets on my roses and here is the result. I think it's lovely. Here's a better look at the roses.
I hope you enjoy my card today & thanks so much for stopping by.
