Today's card is for my sister-in-law, who is recuperating from surgery. I hope she likes it and it brings her some cheer....
I know poppies are not purple, but I really wanted to use it on these flowers today. I guess you could say I used artistic license.
Stamps: Penny Black Poppies 3949H and Thinking of You from Penny Black Gratitude clear set 30-105.
Other: Spellbinder's die for purple embossed frame; Lawn Fawn stitched squares dies; amethyst gems from my stash, Spectrum Noir crystal clear sparkle pen; fun foam; Copic markers.
I stamped the poppies onto white card stock and colored them with my Copic markers. I used the stitched square die, then brushed distress ink (dusty concord) along the outside edges. I then framed it with the purple die cut/embossed frame, then layered it onto black. I used fun foam to attach it to my card base, to give it dimension.
A strip of decorative paper and some of the same card stock as the frame along the left edge give it some interest. I gave the flowers some sparkle with my Spectrum Noir crystal clear sparkle pen. I stamped the verse, and added some gems to finish off the card front.
Here's a peek at the inside....
Simon Says Stamp Prayers stamp set and die. I don't know who the sprig is...it was in my stash unmounted.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
Penny Black At Allsorts Challenge - All things spring
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Spring or Easter
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Showers and/or flowers
I made several cards today. Some for our church card ministry to send to parishioners in hospitals or shut-ins, and a few for relatives and friends....just because. I was on a roll! This was my last one for the day.
Thank you for visiting.
