Hello! How’s your weekend going? Ours is pretty chilly. We had a winter storm warning in effect for last night and today – we were supposed to get around 14” of snow. We woke up this morning to…nothing! lol Later, it started to snow and looked like it was going to get nasty. We wound up only getting about 1.5” and most of it has already melted. Gotta love Colorado! Anyway…
This card was inspired by a few challenges out there – the first being the Cloud 9 March challenge. I also wanted to play along with the CASE study challenge #131, who’s muse this month is the one and only Julie Ebersole. Here are the photos for them
Both are just so beautiful! Unfortunately, I don’t have any Wplus9 Designs floral stamps, so I used the Flourishes Lenten Rose and white embossed it on kraft. Before I colored it with Copics, I used a waterbrush filled with bleach to lighten up the areas I wanted to color.
This is such a pretty card IRL. Not sure if it really comes across on the ole blog. Since I wanted to use this for the Cloud9 challenge, I needed to come up with a stamp to use. The only sets I have are holiday related though. So I took two sentiment stamps from Classic Christmas, masked out the ‘season’ portion and added ‘year’ from a happy new year sentiment. I’ll be able to use this as a birthday card now! Yay! The only thing I wish I’d done differently on this card is to not add the doodled frame. I’ve done a doodle once or twice before and liked the outcome but this one got a bit messed up, and the more I added to try to fix the look, the more I jacked it up! Argh…too much coloring and time spent on this to change it, so I’ll just have to chalk it up to a lesson learned. Don’t focus on that though, k? Let’s just look at the pretty effect of the white embossed flower
