I have been trying to get to this card for the last week after seeing Tracey McNeelys' beautiful inspiration card on Muse Challenge #153
I love clusters of flowers and clusters of three and the colours she has used.
I kept getting busy with other things and had to keep putting the card off and the biggest problem for me is I have so many flower stamps its like 'which one will I use' and the funny thing is I have gone for one of my oldest sets and pretty near one of the first sets I bought. I love this flower.
This is the first time I have done no-line colouring for this stamp and I started out thinking I have bitten off more than I can chew here. I stamped each flower in the Distress Ink colour for the colour of the flower I wanted to do. Then when I added the first coat of copic to the front flower the petals all blended together and I struggled to work out individual petals and shadows.
But I got it done. And Ruth don't have a heart attack started an hour and a half ago and still have 2 hrs 10 minutes to spare before the challenge closes. Mind you no one will have seen it but hey I did it.
After all my colouring I added a bit of pencil to the copics to help define some areas. Added a few clear sparkly gems and stamped Happy Birthday. All one layer - wahoooo
Now time to add this to:
I've just gone with no topping in this instance.
Okay thanks for coming to visit and hope to see you again soon.
