Good Morning friends. Thanks for stopping by today. As I mentioned in my post yesterday, today's theme is something that every cardmaker has in their stash....FLOWERS. Yep that's right. We all have tons of flowers...paper flowers, felt flowers, ribbon flowers, Prima flowers, Punched flowers, Die Cut flowers and now even rolled flowers. There are tons to choose from for all our projects.
I chose a purple scheme for my card. I realized after I completed it, that I could have entered it for the Purple day also.
One of these days, I will learn to either take better pictures or get a better scanner. :) For this card, I used a sketch from the Mojo Monday's archives. I took a piece of DP from the new Recollections set and cut it into 6- 3/4" x 5 1/4" pieces. I adhered them vertically across the card base which a dark purple from Colorbok. I stamped Gypsy with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her in with colored pencils and OMS. I inked the edges with Victorian Velvet DI and matted the image on a piece of black card stock leaving a 2" border on the right side of the image. I then added a piece of light purple pleated ribbon to the right side. I added two Prima purple leaves and different colored flowers from Recollections. I used my hot glue gun to adhere them. I added a little rhinestone center flower to the bottom left corner of the image and highlighted some of the jewerly she's wearing with a Sakura glitter pen in Clear Star.
Thanks again for stopping by today and I hope you are enjoying all the wonderful work that my DT sisters are showcasing. Make sure to visit all the blogs so you don't miss anything.
