Spring Posey

Posting a card for two challenges, JustRite Stampers Friday Challenge to make your own flower embellishments and Flourishes to use aqua, brown and yellow.  For the Flourishes challenge I decided to go with a more blue aqua color instead of a green aqua color.   I stamped the image from the JustRite set Breath of Spring in Memento Rich Cocoa and then colored it with Copic markers (BG000, BG01, BG02, YG00, YG03).   The image was then diecut using a Spellbinders Plain Oval die.  Dark Chocolate cardstock was diecut using a Spellbinders Scalloped Oval die and the two were layered together.  I used my new Spellbinders Labels 21 dies to cut the Lemon Tart cardstock.  Some PTI Spring Rain Bitty Dot Basics paper was cut to fit the card base and distressed with Old Paper ink and a distressing tool.  



I made the flowers using cream felt, the Spring Rain pattern paper and PTI Lemon Tart buttons.  The felt and paper were cut using dies from my Heartfelt Creations/Spellbinders Posy Patch dies.   The Dark Chocolate cardstock looks black, but it is dark brown.

Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, Lemon Tart; PTI Spring Rain PP; Spellbinders Plain & Scalloped Dies, Labels 21 dies; Copic Markers; Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch dies; Memento Rich Cocoa ink; Old Paper distress ink
