Special Day Bouquet

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I've made. This card seems so cheery....I'll have to send it to someone who needs a little encouragement. Let me tell you how it came together for me:

I started with stamping the flower images on white Neenah cs to make a bouquet, coloring them with several Copic Sketch markers. I used Nesties to cut out the bouquet and a tag. I then chose my dp. As you can see, the dp has a yellowish base to it, making my white image piece look all wrong. Thankfully I thought of the Marigold ink pad I have & used a sponge to put down a lot of soft color all over. The dark yellow lines of the borders were made automatically when I wiped my sponge over the cs in smooth, circular motions. I added blue with a Copic marker & went over the edges again with my sponge & ink. Next came the knotted bow to the bottom of the bouquet and a flat ribbon to the dp. Popdots were used to mount both the image & the sentiment pieces. You can click on the photo to enlarge the image & see the details more clearly.

Enjoy your day --- Laurie
