Happiness Today Tutorial

 Hello! Today I have a clean and simple card using Elegant Florals. I fixed my camera settings for this one, so the photos should be a little more clear.

 To begin, I stamped the calla lily image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copics, starting with Y21.

 Added Y000.

 For the stamin, I used Y35. Then I used C1 to add a bit of shading.

 For the stem I filled in with YG03.

 Then used YG93 to shade. After coloring, I cut out the flower.

 Next I cut and embossed Pure Luxury Ivory card stock, using Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Classic Ovals, then sponged with Memento Rich Cocoa while still in the die template.

 Then sponged Memento Cantaloupe over the brown to warm it up just a bit.

 I formed a 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inch Ivory card base and stamped the foliage image using Rich Cocoa ink. I only inked up the top portion of the image. 

Stamped the foliage a second time.

The oval and flower were adhered to the card base using Pop Dots. I stamped the sentiment and added a silk ribbon bow, then added score lines using my Scor-Buddy.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day!
