Friend Bouquet

Hello there.  I received my order from Simon Says Stamps yesterday and knew I had to ink up one of their stamp sets right away.  I also wanted to try something a little different for today’s simple friendship card.



I decided to give my Copics a break and pulled out my Prismacolor pencils.  The flower bouquet was white heat embossed on a black Stitched Rectangle.



It was coloured with white and black pencils.  First time colouring on colour cardstock other than Kraft and it’s kinda cool.  I may have to try this more often.  For some sparkle, clear shimmer was added to the petals and buds.  It’s hard to tell, but it is really sparkly against the black IRL.



I didn’t have a nice yellow colour cardstock, so the friend sentiment was die cut from a scrap of X-Press It paper and coloured with Y06 Copic marker.  Ok, so my Copics didn’t truly get a break after all, 😂  For dimension, friend was die cut from black cardstock three more times.  The panel was adhered to a white top folding card base and some Clear Rain Drops finished off the card.

Thank you for your visit.  Have a great day!
