Flowers for you
Just a quick note before I head off to sleep for the day - busy night at work so a quick walk for my puppy and a bit of destress computer time for me :)
I finished this card yesterday for the current challenge over at Imperession Obsession which is for 'flowers' Check it out here - www.mitrafriant.typepad.com
The stamp I used is from Impression Obsession of course and is called Wild Sweetheart Rose H8889.
I colored it with prismacolor pencils and blended the background with mineral spirits. I cut the main image and the next layer with Spellbinders labels dies. (the second layer is the cut out piece from yesterdays card :)
I spent some time trying to find DP for the background on this card - was looking for pink, something distressed and vintage-ish and nothing looked right, then happened to try the black with pinkish swirls and it really looked dramatic.
I added some gold sticker corners and some pearls , 3 layers of ribbon and a paper bow from my stash .
The paper bow is an Accu cut die designed by my friend Vicki - www.vickichrisman.blogspot.com (I may have to get that die - I seem to have used up almost all of the small bow that I got from Vicki...)
