ETA: I was chosen as a "Glamette" at Friday Mashup for this entry. Woo Hoo!
I had a chance to watercolor another flower from the Secret Garden stamp set. Lovely images, this one is the largest of them. The flower was stamped in Jet Black Stazon and then water colored in Calypso Coral with an Aquapainter. A Summer Starfruit marker was used to ink up the center of the flower.
I decided to create a layer between the Crumb Cake square and the flower, so a Windows Collection framelit was cut out of Confetti Cream card stock and then stamped in Crumb Cake with the Canvas backgrounder stamp.
The card was made for this week's challenge at the Friday Mashup, where one could use the sketch or make a birthday card, or "mash" it up by doing both. Which I did.
Here's the sketch:
Yes, I now realize I literally mirrored the sketch with my polka dot Calypso Coral designer paper LOL!! Oh well, I really love that paper and it looks fantastic with Crumb Cake.
The colors were chosen in order to join the color challenge at Fab Friday:
This is a great color combo, however, other than the center of the flower, I wasn't sure how I wanted to incorporate Summer Starfruit. I decided to add a butterfly, which was then stamped with the Hello Doily stamp. Actually, the butterfly was carefully laid upon a specific area of the stamp inked with a Summer Starfruit marker.
Basic Rhinestones on the butterfly and in the opposing corner add a little of bling.
They are a little harder to see in this picture than the other full shot above. I am definitely going to do some research into photo editing software. I use what came with my computer and it just isn't doing what I need. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for dropping by today! I really appreciate your comments and would love to hear from you!
Until next time!
