And another one....

Well, looks like I am on a roll here. Here is another flower card. Love how this one turned out. Poppy stamp is from SU, sentiment from a Heroarts set. I stamped the poppies several times on watercolor paper (masking as I stamped) and then cut out with a circle nestie. I water colored the poppies using distress ink and then sponged antique linen around the poppies. A couple of the flowerheads were cut out and popped up for added dimension. Sponged all edges with brown ink and added a bow made fom seam binding ribbon, which I colord with distress ink to match the poppies. I love the orange BG paper, but can not remember who makes it. Well, back to my stamping table to come up with maybe another card before the Flower Parade is over.

Thanks for stopping by!

Another card for the CLASSroom Flower Parade

Today I have another flower card for the Flower Parade on the CLASSroom blog.
Rose stamp is by Anna Griffin. I stamped it on patterned paper from 7Gypsies (I think) and colored in using prismas and gamsol. Aged around the image by sponging antique linen distress ink around the outside of the image and around image panel edges. Edges were also distressed with an edge distresser. Background papers were stamped with stamps from papertreyink( guidelines 2 and polka dot background). To finish it off, I added lace, some ribbon, buttons and covered the rose with clear glass glitter.
Hope you like it!

The CLASSroom Flower Parade

Well, I decided to dust off my blog and post something today. WhooHoo! I got a newsletter email yesterday from Ellen Hudson with an invitation to join the flower parade they are having on the Classroom blog and decided this is the perfect time to post a new card. And without further ado, here it is:
Stamp is by Penny Black. I colored the flowers in with colored pencil and gamsol. Overstamped image with SU's Linen background in Ranger antique linen distress ink and distressed al edges with Vintage photo distress ink. Script background by SU, also stamped in antique linen distress ink. Added a black mat behind the focal image and some plaid ribbon and black buttons.
I really like how it turned out.
Thanks for looking!
