I hope that everyone has great plans for the holiday weekend. Whether it is busy or relaxing, enjoy your time!
I have a card to post today, which was sent to an ill friend a little bit ago. I received the image in an image swap on SCS. I felt like using blue as a color. Wouldn't you know it; I found some 'Grandma Paper' again in that matstack that I cannot seem to get away from! LOL
The card base is Stampin' Up! Not Quite Navy. The DP is from DCWV The Cafe Mediterranean matstack. I like how the DP has embossed flowers. The green layer is from my scrap bin. I had the eyelets on hand.
The image titled Apple Blossom. It is from Silver Fox Stamps and More. It was fun to work with. I colored the image with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils. I used Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects to texture the flower image. I sponged the background with Stampin' Up! Creamy Caramel and Apricot Appeal inks. I then cut the image with Nestabilities. I used dimensionals to raise the image from the card base.
Just a quick note regarding Nestabilities. I purchased five different types of them recently, having never used them before. I would suggest when you purchase to get the large sets, as I went back and forth and purchased small and wished I had not. I have found that most images take the largest die cut and then you do not have a larger die to layer with. It has happened almost every time I have used them thus far! I know what I will be getting soon - the SAME ONES I have, but larger!
Thanks, for taking a look and again, have a great weekend!
