Today is the last day of our CAS Theme week :( Can you believe it's our last day already?! I just want to thank Vera for doing this challenge with me, I have had such fun this week. Vera you are such a sweetheart and I absolutely adore your style, thank you so much :) Of course I also want to thank you all for joining us this week. All of your comments have been so lovely, crafters are the best :)
For our last day we are using Delicate Blossoms by Hero Arts. I am also entering this card into Gallery Idol 2011 (why not right?) and Lucy's Lovely Lines at Lily Pad Cards. Let's dive right in!
Here's Lucy's sketch
I started off with white card stock cut to a standard sized card. I stamped the large poppies from the set in jet black archival ink (Ranger). I colored the stems using a marker. To add some interest (I know I've been doing plain white all week :) I inked up another Hero Arts stamp, friend definition, with antique linen and stamped my card front. I added some more antique linen with my inking tool just to the edges.
On a separate white piece I stamped the large poppies again then fussy cut out just the flowers. I colored them with worn lipstick, barn door, and fired brick. They were then adhered flat to the card front.
I stamped the sentiment in jet black archival ink. The sentiment is from Essential Messages (more Hero Arts stamps yay!) I added some green rhinestones which I colored with the same marker as the stems.
Thanks to Vera again for getting inky with me :) I'm heading over to see her fab project now, come along!!
