Yay! I finally finished a card I stared prior to Wally's surgery! Actually, I finished it last Wednesday, but I'm not always Johnny on the Spot about getting things photographed and written up. Wally's doing much better now. Moving around more and spending time outside with us. One more week and his staples can come out if his incision is healed enough. Trying to keep him from licking it is requiring a very watchful eye. Oh, just in case you don't realize... Wally is a dog. Guess I should mention that.
Anyway... the card... I colored yellow roses for this one. I suppose I should move on to late summer flowers and fall cards, but roses are still in bloom and we're still very much enjoying summer. We'll have flowers blooming well into October. I used Power Poppy's Everything's Even Rosier clear stamp set. The sentiment is from their Nice Things to Say set.
Using Memento London Fog ink I stamped and masked one rose, then stamped three more times. Colored with these Copic markers:
BG10, BG11, G0000, and the Colorless Blender were used in the edge shading around the flowers. BV01 was used to deepen some of the shadows in the roses.
Just for a little something extra in the design, I punched an oval notch in the image panel to set the ribbon slide into. I was bound and determined to use some ribbon on this card, but I didn't want to tie a bulky knot. Even though there's designer paper, embossing, ribbon, a ribbon slide, and quite a bit of coloring, I hoped for this card to have a clean look to it.
I'll pop in soon with one of those fall cards I mentioned. I've got a couple of things I've been waiting to use... Hope to see you then. Have a happy day!
