Cup of Pansies

Check out the gorgeous inspiration photo the Just Add Ink team have for you this week:

It's pretty obvious how I was inspired...

I have to admit to buying this Taylored Expressions stamp set specifically for this challenge (like I needed an excuse, really 😃😃)  I stamped it onto a panel of X-Press It blending card then colored it with Copic markers.  I then fussy-cut around the left side of the image, using my paper trimmer for the straight bits, before running it through my Big Shot with a stitched edge die.

Onto the white card base I adhered a strip of Blue Violet cardstock that I'd white embossed a birthday sentiment onto.  The colored panel is popped up on foam tape and the flowers are colored with clear sparkle pen.

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the fabulous cards made by the rest of the design team.

This is fabulous Karren! Your colouring is gorgeous as always and I love the shading you've added to the saucer and how the bold strip of colour along the side allows your sentiment to shine too. So clever! xx
