Potted Impatiens

Julee from Verve is having a release party tonight.  If you haven't seen the previews, take a peek at the Verve blog.  Looks like some really beautiful stamp sets are on the way.  This is a sketch that was posted yesterday to win a set.  I had fun making this card and it came together very easily.  I first chose my image and then went to my new BasicGrey Pocelain dp & removed a few pages.

  So easy to get a card together with these 6 X 6 paper pads.  I stamped my image in Memento tuxedo black right onto the dp and coloured with Copics.  I am a newbie when it comes to using these that I just bought last week (the pastels set) so it had to be real simple colouring, as you can see.  I stamped the bees from the same set onto velum and coloured theses too with a Copic and also applied pearl white Lumiaire to the wings.  I cut out the potted image and mounted onto a square of the same sheet of Porcelain and then framed that with a square of the beautiful "zig zag" dp.  I also added towards the bottom of the card, some K & Co adhesive paper ribbon that I thought went well with this vintagey feel and then took a strip of the polka dotted Porcelain paper and made a scalloped edge to place over that.  That's it.  Thanks for taking a peek!
