Happy Sunday to you! Today is my last Limelight guest designer post for the month over at the Flourishes blog. I hope you'll join me there, to see how I made this 4" x 4" tumbled marble tile drink coaster with my Copic markers and beautiful Flourishes Pears stamp set!
Today over at the Flourishes blog I'll show you how I made this fun Valentine bookmark using their beautiful Winter Bouquet stamp set on an Inchie Arts white Twinchie Square, colored with Copic markers, and a paint chip sample. I hope you'll join me!
Good morning, everyone ... I'm excited to be the Limelight Designer for Flourishes this month! I've always loved their gorgeous stamp designs, so I was very honored to be asked to design with them! I hope you'll check back in each Sunday this month, for some pretty Flourishes inspiration!
I'm starting off the month with one of my very favorite Flourishes floral images, the Lenten Rose set, colored with my Copic markers, of course!
You can find out all the details on how I created this card (or artwork piece?!!) over at the Flourishes blog today! Happy Sunday!
Here's another sample from Flourishes' new Lilac set that was released last week. I chose to use SplitcoastStampers.com's weekly Color Challenge #167 (soft green, soft pale blue & navy) and Sketch Challenge #177, so almost all the choices were already made for this card except choosing the papers I wanted to use!
I was delighted to find Memory Box's Inspire paper pack has most of these colors! I added Stampin' Up's Night of Navy as a 5.5" card base and matting around the image I stamped onto a more solid sheet of this paper pack's colors. I used Ranger's Adirondack Espresso dye ink to stamp the image and then quickly clear heat embossed it while the ink was still wet. This gave me a good outline to add the Dark Blue Stickles for the lilac flowers.
Here's a closeup, so you can hopefully see all the sparkle this lilac has -- there's actually a lot of purple in it:
I used these Copic markers to color the leaves & branch: G24, G28, E25, E27; and T3 for shadows. The sentiment is from Flourishes' Siberian Iris set. The edges of the focal image and mat were distressed using Tonic's Edge distresser. These layers are popped up on dimensional foam tape.
A piece of striped paper from the Inspire pack was used for the right vertical element in this sketch, topped with Water Dew Drops. I let the pattern of the paper serve as the left vertical element of the sketch. A little paper piercing finishes off this card.
Today's my 14th wedding anniversary, so I'm off to make a card for hubby and will post it later!
