A stamping, card making, paper crafting blog with a botanical (mostly floral) theme
Tuesday, July 21, 2009
Hi everyone! I am still loving this Karen Lockhart stamp, as all of the other Lockharts I have. They have such great detail for the florals and I so enjoy colouring them in. This card is another purple card. I don't really like purple, but some florals in real life are purple, and I do like colouring true to life. I stamped the image in SU basic gray and coloured in with various Copics. I then cut with the classic oval Nestability and mounted that onto a scalloped oval. The dp under this is an old Laura Ashley scrap that I hunted for in my stash and I used a Nestability Labels die to make a mat for the oval mounted image(like I said, I don't love or have a lot of the purples in anything) I also cut a larger Label shape from a green Prima CS. I was satisfied with that lokk and number of layers and placed it on the card base that was covered in a polka dot dp (unknown) and a cut paper doily piece. I have had these square paper doilies from SU for 5+ years! I have finally figured out a use for them, yay! The ribbon is from the same length that my friend Yvonne gave to me last month (she's not that crazy fond of purple either;) Hope she likes how I have been using the goods! The flowers are primas and the centers are gems from k & Co.
Here's a close-up of the colored image. I have decided that you REALLY CAN'T go wrong with colours when you are using Copics.
