Hi there! Today's card is a triple challenge card. I followed the inspiration challenge at SCS, the sketch challenge at PCP and the Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes to use buttons. This is the photo I chose for my inspiration.
I colored my image (Thank You Tulip from Flourishes) with Copic markers, then went over it with my Versa Mark pen and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Next, I sponged in the background using Blush Blossom, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Ruby Red and Bravo Burgundy.
I added some flourishes using a stamp from Siberian Iris. I inked it up with Bravo Burgundy and stamped it off twice on scrap paper before stamping. I did that several times, then stamped it twice with Ruby Red. Then I added some highlights with my white Sakura pen.
The two background panels are designer paper. The top is Kim Hughes from Cornish Heritage Farms and the bottom is from Making Memories.
I stamped the sentiment (also from Siberian Iris) on Blush Blossom cardstock and punched it out using my word window punch from Stampin' Up. To make a larger layer below it, I cut a strip of black cardstock just slightly narrower than 1/2 inch and used my 1/2 circle punch to round the ends. The card base is Blush Blossom.
Thanks for looking. I hope you are having a great Valentine's Day!
