I created this card for today’s JustRite Stampers Color Challenge. The inspiration piece is a beautiful bed cover shown in this picture. It also worked great for yesterday’s Way to Use it Challenge on Splitcoast, Flower Frenzy.
Doesn’t that just scream Springtime? I hope Ohio hears that scream….because on Wednesday, I created this card while snow was falling. It didn’t stay on the ground, thank goodness, but really? Snow at the end of March? No thank you!
For my card I decided to use a frame from the Fancy Label Cling set with an image from the Breath of Spring set. The frame was stamped first in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, It was then masked and the tulip bouquet from Breath of Spring was stamped in the same color.
The image was colored with Copic Markers (Tulips: YR61, YR65, YR68 Y21, Y23, Y38 Leaves: YG61, YG63, YG67 Bow and tag: B60, B63 Shading and Frame: YR30, 1/5th YR31 (custom made marker), YR31) and cut out with Label 18 Nestabilities (those just came in that day! Perfect timing).
After coloring I went on the hunt for the perfect paper. I looked through my entire stash trying to find matching blue paper, but couldn’t find a thing. I guess I need more paper, LOL?
I finally settled on a 2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ strip of Material Girl green paper from Cosmo Cricket stitched on a 3 3/4″ x 5 /12″ piece of Cosmo Cricket Ever After paper. 1/2 a doily was adhered to the top and White Organdy Ribbon was tied around the green paper strip. The ribbon was heated with a heat gun to age it and topped with a Vintage Brad from Stampin’ Up!. A second brad was placed over it.
The image was adhered over the ribbon with dimensionals. A Recollections Pearl Swirl was cut up. The big part was adhered on the top left , the small piece was adhered to the lower right of the image.
The sentiment is from the Cling set Fancy Tags. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink (just noticed I did a booboo and didn’t stamp that in Rich Cocoa. DUH) on a piece of Solar White cardstock cut and embossed with the smallest die from the Tag Trio set. The embossed part of the tag was colored with Copic Marker B60.
