Melanie Muenchinger is celebrating 2 years with her blog. She has challenged us to do a card with one of her stamp sets she has designed for Gena K Designs.
This is my card I am entering to help her celebrate.
I inked up the cuttlebug embossing folder with a light tan ink and ran it thought and embossed it. ( This is a challenge Gena K is having on Stamp TV. She has a tutorial there on how to do it.) I stamped the saying (SU) and then die cut it with a spellbinder die. Before I took it out of the die I used a copic marker and an air can to soften the edges around it.
I stamped the flowers with a reddish momento ink and a green momento ink for the leaves. I then colored them with copic markers. They were then cut out and added to the card with pop dots do add some dimension.The rustic look of the back ground really is a nice background for the Brighter orange flowers. I hope you like my take on Melanie's " A Year with flowers" stamp set.It is a favorite of mine.
Have a great day!
