Love and Peace

Happy Friday Afternoon Friends!

I've spent most of my day cleaning & laundry (just gotta do it sometimes LOL) but I did
make a card yesterday and wanted to share it with you. 

I was in need of a sympathy card and even though I have several in my Craft Show sale box, I wanted
to make something special for the person I'm sending it to.  So I decided to create a quick panel using some of the awesome digital stamps available over at Beverly Cole's Etsy Shop called  TheArtsystamperShop

I began by choosing what flowers I wanted to use for the focus image ...

This is a fabulous kit with images you can color yourself or precolored for you.  Today I selected the precolored single flower image but then changed the color in my software to blue.  Then copy/pasted that same image and reduced the size.  I then copy/pasted that smaller flower to create my 3 flower cluster before modifying the color.  As you can see I made one of the smaller flowers a darker shade of blue then the other two ... always need a bit of contrast!  LOL

Next, I brought in my leaves and selected to 'place to back' which put them behind my flowers. 
Now I need a sentiment and the sentiment I chose is from the Vintage Roses & Birds Set.

The last thing I needed was to select my background.  For that, I chose one of the beautiful papers available in the Artsy Jellies Paper Pack.

After printing onto glossy photo paper, I punched the corners and matted it with green card stock.  A few sequins and Nuvo Crystal Drops for embellishment ... my card is ready for a message and a stamp.

If you're not familiar with Bev's work, you are missing out!
She also has a challenge blog that you only need to follow the theme to join in

  2. Clever you to digitally piece together such a beautiful card! I love that you printed on glossy paper. It's an elegant finish that also gives fabulous depth to the color.

  3. Lovely card. I miss seeing your craft table filled with all the beautiful creations you make and sell each year. Is that going to happen this year? I somehow doubt they'll let the small craft shows go on unless they are outside. [Bunny]
