Hello and hard to believe it is July! It is hot here in NC and looking to get over to the lake for a bit this afternoon to cool off!
Today I have a card to share that I made with some Penny Black stamps, Tsukineko ink and Spectrum Noir markers.
I have some Copics, but honestly the price at times just rubs me the wrong way so I thought I would try Spectrum Noir, especially since they were $7.99 a pack (6 per pack) last week at AC Moore. LOVE the pinks and obviously pink is a favorite color. First, I stamped the Scented Message image using Versafine Oynx Black and embossed it with clear embossing powder. That step gives details images a clearly defined and slightly raised lines to contain the coloring a bit. Then I used Spectrum Noir BP2 and BP6 to color in the flowers, the leaves were colored using Copics (as at the time I didn't have greens in SN, I have since remedied that, lol). After the image was colored, I die-cut it using Labels Twenty and while still in the die, gently sponged with Desert Sand. The sentiment is from So Blessed. The Flower Flourish background was stamped using Rose Bud on Passionate Pink card stock. I added a bit of corrugated cardboard and did some faux stitching along the top.
Here is a close-up (LOVE how the flowers just pop):
I used Viva Decor pearl pens to add a liquid pearl onto the center of each flower.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
