Hello, friends! We've reached Flowerful Friday again and I have a very flowerful card to share. I mentioned in an earlier post that I have five new Mintay 6x6 designer paper pads. Oh, my word, I can't stop looking at them. Probably my favorite of the five will be whichever I'm working with at the time and today it's the collection called "Farm Life".
As is so often the case, many of the papers are too pretty to cut down or cover up, but I bought them to use, rather than hoard, so I must figure a way to work this out. Looking at this particular piece, an idea sprang to mind.
Gee, I hope it won't be my only idea. Luckily, there are four sheets of each double sided design, so it wasn't too painful to slice off the top four inches of this one. The card base is 4 1/4 x 6, so I was able to use all but 1/4" of the sheet crosswise. Power Poppy's "Go Wild" pitcher of fresh picked roses and strawberries was stamped directly onto the sheet and colored with Copics. It's nestled in as though it was mean to be.
The sentiment flag shows the flip side of this sheet. The stitching helps frame it up, and I added the Copic-colored leaf die cut for additional dimension and grounding of the image.
I've already started playing with more Mintay and Power Poppy, but the idea hasn't yet come to fruition, and by the time you read this I might be camping again. Maybe I've got my coloring with me... Have a happy day!
