Baroque Motifs

I saw the Sketch Challenge for this week on SCS and decided to combine it with the Color Challenge. The color challenge was to use the colors Elegant Eggplant, Taken with Teal and Old Olive....great colors but I wasn't sure of them together. :o) I had to figure out a way to get the Old Olive color in there so I stamped the flourish in Olive after it had already been stamped in Eggplant. I am pleased with how it lined up, just a little off so that you can see it was stamped twice. All of the flowers were stamped in Taken with Teal and I even cut around the larger one and popped it on a dimensional and added a little bling to the center. The Taken with Teal layer of cardstock was punched with the new Scalloped border punch...great punch that is so easy to use!
Have a great day!

I've just visited your blog for the first time and you have some really beautiful cards here! I love the Noble Deer card, especially! I just ordered that too when it went on the retired list. I don't know what I was waiting for (LOL)! You were also talking about the marker you used to color the daisy (similar to a copic) and about the ink bleeding. I use Adirondack Pitch Black or Espresso (brown) with my copics and that works bleeding. HTH!
