Beautiful flowers...times 2!

Look what fun I had this past weekend! I completed another card sketch from SCS (#191); I've been wanting to try this sketch for a couple of weeks and finally found the time.

This floral image is from The Paper Source, but it hadn't had any ink lovin' yet. The stamp is all the flowers you see here..but see that tiny little green stem to the far left? It's not really there; I drew that in. When you see my final card you'll see why!

I love how this DP was just perfect for the stamp; I colored the stamp with SU! Markers using a lighter pink for the entire flower and then a bit of a darker pink in the middle, green for the vine. The DP is from Basic Grey's Sultry pack - again...LOVE THESE PAPERS!!

I wanted the image to be longer than just the one image you see above; so I stamped the image a 2nd time and then drew in the green stem to tie the two images together. The sentiment is from Papertreyink's "Out on a Limb Sentiments"; I really like all the sentiments in this set - some give me goosebumps!!

I used my oval nestabilities for the whisper white oval and the scalloped DP underneath. I should remember when I've got my nestabilities out to just make several cut outs at the same time and that way I have extras ready to go!! Note to self: remember that! LOL We'll see how that works!

I hope you're having a great week; thanks for popping in. BTW, I found out the problem with my blog and blog banner; not sure I'll be getting it back...so, I'll begin looking for a new designer to assist with a blog banner and layout. I gotta get my colors back; I so loved them!

Take care; see you again soon! Hugs, ~M.
