Freshly Made Sketches #152

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-j9_dwIPqeLw/U_yqTjdL3JI/AAAAAAAABjA/iuaPX23bEOI/s1600/FMS%2BFinal%2B152-001.pngLast night I got to telecraft with my California scrappin bud.  I wanted to make a card for Freshly Made Sketches #152.

I ended up making two cards from the same stamp. A simple version and one that is a bit more interpretive.

Both fit the sketch.  I followed the sketch, but made my card portrait instead of landscape.

I used a new to me stamp from Deep Red, called Flower Blossom.  The image was colored with Copic markers (I am trying to get some practice in before Online Card Classes Copic Markers  for Card Makers begins.)
 


I used some scraps of patterned paper, Memento Tuxedo Black for image stamping, and Versafine Onyx Black for the sentiments. They came from two sets, Favorite Flowers from SSS, and Fresh Flowers from Clearly Bessotted. I called two dies and one punch into action as well, the postage stamp edge from Ek Success,  the Tessatina border from Memory Box and the pierced rectangles from MFT. A bit of white gel pen for the dots, and some shine from clear wink of stella completed the image.


Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Two gorgeous cards, Cat! Your Copic coloring is amazing (by the way, I don't think you need to 'practice') and I love how you added dimension with the dots...so pretty! Lovely designs on both cards, too!
