It feels sooooo GOOD to stamp and create again!
I needed a birthday card for a good friend of mine....we share the same birthday (February 2). Unfortunately, I'm late.....I arrived home just in time to celebrate, but NOT create! So, finally, I took a bit of time today, and came up with this; although, I have to admit that it was a bit of a struggle....it's been so long, that it was an effort coming up with an idea! BUT, guess what?!! This fits last week's Bloggers' Challenge....so I'm in! Late, but still participating!
The colors on screen seem to be a bit off:
The background is actually Mellow Moss and the leaves are stamped onto Whisper White.
Wonderful You was used....I LOVE this set! It's still available, even though it is no longer in the main catalog....it's on the dormant list, meaning that you can still purchase it!
Each flower was stamped on a separate piece/scrap of Whisper White CS and colored in with my Copics, then cut out. There are little pink crystals in the center of each flower and my Glitter Pen was used around the edges and to highlight the stamen......I know you can't see it on screen, but this gives the flowers a lovely subtle sparkle. Then the petals were curled around a pencil to give them dimension and applied with Mini Glue Dots. The eyelet border was created with my Martha Stewart Punch.....now SU has a fabulous new Eyelet Edge Punch, but this was purchased BEFORE the catalog was released. Who knew?!!
