Bloomie Tosha Leyendeker is asking us to stretch ourselves by either making a long and somewhat skinny card or maybe trying something new or challenging. Well, my card is 3" x 6 1/2" so that fits the challenge but I also incorporated some DSP from Lili of the Valley, (unfortunately, they are not selling anymore of this glorious papers, which I love for their beauty and also because they are one sided). Those of you who know me are aware of my total lack of an eye for combining DSP on my cards, so I hope I did a good job on this one.
The image is from the beautiful Power Poppy set, by the amazing Marcella Howley called Azaleas , I stamped this flowers onto a panel of Canson water color paper and colored with the aqua painter and SU markers in Rich Razzleberry, Always Artichoke and a bit of Chocolate Chip for the stem and the shadow under the glass. The "water" in the vase has a bit of Bashful Blue.
Here is a close up of this lovely blooms.
I used my Prismacolor pencil #995 Mulberry, to add some texture to the petals and a bit of white for highlights. I made a pretty bow with some gold thread and linen thread, leaving the ends to just hang.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.
And here is the banner that inspired this card.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
