Dreamy

Hi!  Today's card was made using the fabulous sketch at The Paper Players and the colors at Color Throwdown.  As this is a birthday card and I used washi tape, I'm also entering this at Seize the Birthday.



I inked the head of my Penny Black flower in Goldenlocks ink then used a Wild Honey distress marker to add some darker shading near the base.  I inked the stem in Black Soot.  I then used a piece of washi tape for the vertical panel.  




Audrey Blue was the blue used for the layer and the sentiment and some homemade enamel dots finished this very CAS card.





Thanks for visiting.

Products used:

Stamps:  Dreamy (Penny Black), Say it in Style (Clearly Besotted)
Ink:  Goldenlocks, Audrey Blue (SSS)
Cardstock:  White, Audrey Blue
Accessories:  Wild Honey, Black Soot distress markers, enamel dots, corner chomper, Epic Day washi tape (SU)

Cheers
Karren
