a quick post...

Hello friends!!  A quick post today to let you know about a couple of things.  First I have a card that I made using some of my left over scraps up over at the CardMaker blog today.  You can check it out here.

Second Penny Black is playing along with Designed to Color and I made the following card (you can also see it on the Penny Black blog, here):


To make the card I started by stamping and coloring the PB Amaryllis image using Copic markers.  The flower image was stamped again, colored with Copics and then trimmed out.  After all the coloring was done I over stamped the image with the Penny Black background stamp Christmas Story using Pumice Stone and then adhered the flower with foam dimensionals.  The image was then inked with Old Paper distress ink.  After mounting the piece on the card front a small tag was stamped with the word "Noel" (from the clear set "in a pear tree"), inked with Old Paper, adhered to the image and a red twine bow was added.   If you want to play along with the Designed to Color challenge click here.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock: PTI Rustic White; Stamps:  Penny Black, Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Pumice Stone & Old Paper; Twine:  May Arts red; Tag die:  PTI tiny tags; Copic Markers

What an absolutely GORGEOUS card, Rosemary! I love the beautifully colored amaryllis against the lovely background! Well done!

My dear FIL (now passed) used to send us a beautiful red amaryllis every Christmas. It was SO fun to watch it grow from it's beginning stage. What amazing beauty it was, just like yours on your beautiful card.
