Today is a two post Wednesday and this is my first card for the day. I’m so excited to share the inspiration from The Card Concept for our latest challenge. As I was looking at the beautiful details of that fireplace, I found that the colors and the patterns started to jump out at me and so an idea was born.
I think this flower from Poinsettia (Simon Says Stamp) is simply wonderful to color. I used it with Copics last week but decided to try it with Zig Clean Color Markers for this challenge. I thought the watercolor feel was more in line with the country vibe of the photo. I stamped the flower using Versafine Onyx Black and then masked it to add the leaf. The paper is Fabriano Watercolor Paper. The sentiments from the same stamp set worked perfectly for this so I inked up this combination with Versafine again and used my Misti to make sure my stamping was right. I always use my Misti when I have colored the image (because…well, you know why). I used the Wonky Stitched Rectangles Dies to add a bit more detail when I cut the image panel down to size. Now for the background. I created a card base using this great pattern from Under the Tree DSP (SU ret). Yep, the whole card base. Because the other side (now the inside) is a Kraft pattern with little stars. I love the result!! Finally, I pulled some sequins out and started to mix and match. These happen to all be from Paper Pumpkin kits.
Make sure you check my second post for Freshly Made Sketches too. I am still recovering from our Thanksgiving adventures but the fun was worth all the traveling. Hope you have a great week! See you soon!
