Blue Flowers

It's a chilly Monday afternoon here, so what better than to stamp :)

I made a card today using the gorgeous colors from Color Throwdown and the versatile sketch from Viva la Verve.



I went with a Basic Gray cardbase for this card which always adds a bit of drama!  The flowers were colored with Copics and the leaves were stamped with Lucky Limeade ink.  The sentiment panel was a piece of white cardstock that I colored with Copics to match the darker blue flower.  I then white-embossed the sentiment from Poppy Birthday.

The center of each flower and the sentiment panel were painted with clear Wink of Stella for a subtle shimmer.

Thanks for visiting.




Products used:

Stamps:  Poppy Birthday, Lean on Me (Verve), Leafy Accents (Clearly Besotted)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Cardstock:  Basic Gray, Whisper White, Xpress-it
Accessories:  Copic Markers, Wink of Stella, White Ep, Pointed Flowers die, Leafy Accents die, Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangles dies

Cheers
Karren
