True Friend- Poppies, Polka Dots and Gingham :-)
Hi Again Stampers!!
This is the fourth card created based on the wonderful SR199 Stampin’ Royalty Photo Inspiration as well as the Splitcoaststampers SC459 Sketch and the CC449 ColorChallenge.
Hopefully you will find the time to visit each of the sites/galleries- check out the Design Team samples as well as the other entries (great job by all!)
Again, if you have been following this series of cards inspired by the SR199 photo, you will know that I used very limited supplies along with pre-printed My Digital Studio images (if interested, more details for that decision are here :-))
To create this card:
Using My Digital Studio (MDS) print out the Pleasant Poppies (I re-sized this image) along with the sentiment from Simple Friendship onto Whisper White cardstock.
Using the retired SU! Watercolor Pencils, color the Pleasant Poppies image with the pencil closest to Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive colors.
Create the shadow using the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker and add more definition and details to the petals using the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write marker.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Finishing Touches Edglelit™ to cut a border on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and adhere the poppy image at the top.
Add the gingham ribbon bow (from my stash) along with a scrap piece of polka dot background paper above the die cut edge and add the sentiment below the ribbon (punched from the retired small oval punch).
Adhere two strips of the retired polka dot background paper to the Basic Black card base, add the darker polka dot layer and mount the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals™.
Of course, add a few Pearls to finish off the card :-).
Stamp Sets: Pleasant Poppies, Simple Friendship (both MDS)
Ink: Printer Ink- Black, SU! Watercolor Pencils, Stampin’ Write Marker- Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, retired Neutrals background papers
Accessories: Big Shot™, Finishing Touches Edglelit™, retired Small Oval Punch, Pearls, gingham ribbon (from my stash)
Thanks again for taking the time to visit- only two more cards to post…
Hope you are having a great evening!
