With red being the cue word there were just so many ways I could take my card, but one thing I decided right away was that I was not going to use the same color red that I used last week!! This week I decided to use SU!'s Riding Hood Red and have it take a larger role by using it for my card base. I also decided to do a little bit of coloring with my Copics. I pulled out a Taylored Expressions petite stamp set called Spring Tulips and colored them with the following Copics: R20, R24, R27, R29, YG00, YG03. B0000 and B000. Once I was finished coloring the image I die cut it using a Spellbinders plain rectangle die. I wanted to have the image framed, but I didn't want to add any addition layers to my card so I embossed the next larger die onto my cardstock base and adhered the image using foam dimensionals. The embossed frame provides a nice, subtle detail to an otherwise somewhat plain card. Finished things off by stamping the sentiment (also from Spring Tulips) directly on the card base with black ink.
Thanks for stopping by.... make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, Meghan and this week's guest designer, Lucy. Can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!
