Vase of Flowers

It's Saturday here and I finally got a chance to stamp again.  I tried the other night but my attempts were pitiful so I gave up.  I struggled a bit today but I had a head start with this card, as I'd already colored the image a week ago so I just had to make it into a card.

I used the sketch at Pals Paper Arts as well as the toppings challenge at Seize the Birthday to add coloring to your birthday card.

Now I feel the need to add a disclaimer here LOL.  I'm very much a beginner when it comes to copics so bear that in mind when you cast your eyes over my card.



This image is actually two stamps from Purple Onion Designs - the jar and the bunch of flowers.  I stamped them onto Xpress-it  cardstock and colored with copics.  I colored this image with no layout nor finished card in mind so it was a nice surprise to find the orange flowers matched Tangerine Tango cardstock.  The tag is another of the die cuts from my Merry Monday Secret Santa, onto which I stamped the sentiment from PTI's Birthday Bash Sentiments set and popped up with dimensionals.

Thanks for looking.



Products used:

Stamps:  PTI, Purple Onion Designs
Ink:  Brilliance Graphite Black
Cardstock:  Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, Xpress-it
Accessories:  American Crafts Twine, copic markers, unknown tag die cut

Cheers
Karren
