Hello friends... Hope your week is going well. I have been having a busy one getting my oldest up early and off to a summer school program and then the little one off to his vacation bible school. Honestly... I'm looking forward to the week being over! Anywhoo... have a card today that I made using the current color combo from Dynamic Duos and the layout from Sketchbook Saturday.
I went really CAS with my take on the sketch because I wanted to keep the focus on the image that I used... a gorgeous Penny Black flower (4313J - graceful). I almost went with a Penny Black butterfly image, but decided against it... really glad I did! I stamped the flower on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored it with Copic markers (RV21, RV23, RV25, Y11, Y13, Y15, & Y17) and then trimmed it out. The patterned paper is from Stampin Up!. I'm not entirely sure that it is Daffodil Delight, but I think it is the perfect background for the flower. I added a thin black border behind the patterned paper before adhere it to the white cardstock piece to provide a bit of contrast. A fishtail flag was die cut and the sentiment (a portion of a sentiment from the transparent set 30-164 - edge to edge) was stamped also using Tuxedo Black ink. Everything was adhered to the card base and I was done. Love how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by...
