Trilliums 2014  l
My papers are all from my scraps and I’m doing really good getting my scraps down. Added some green ribbon. Brilliance ink sky blue for the background.
The picture is fine but not very straight (sorry). Used a flower punch and add the flowers I punched out to the other side. Just cannot waist anything. Let open for sentiment. Not sure if you can tell I added pink gems to the center of the flowers on top.
These are the copic markers used to color the stamped image. Here is the close up of the image all colored up. Used copic opaque white to try and add some texture to the flowers.
Hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week and be safe.

Hello Friend

It is time for Scrapy Land challenge #2 and the challenge for the time is about Heat Embossing. The challenge starts today and ends Sept 30. I used one of ATC's flourish stamps and with VersaMark watermark stamp pad I embossed the background of the card and used white embossing power and heat set the embossing power and used distress ink color scattered straw and sponged around to add a small amount of color.

Look at all the brands of dies that Scrapy Land sells:
    The card size is 5" by 7", That is a different size for me to use but the vase and flowers turned out rather tall but that size worked just right. The paper came from my scraps. The ribbon is from stampin up color marina mist.
The dies cuts I used are: Spellbinders in'spire in-037, celebration two, elegant ovals, filigree vase and the blue bells and lily of the valley.
    Here is the inside of the card. Nothing fancy. The corners I used creative memories corner punch and add a blue gem to each corner.
Here is the close up of the vase with the flowers. I think it turned out so pretty and love the blue bells. I added some ice sparkle color mint ice and it made the blue bells just sparkle.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Love to have you join us.
