Marcella's been drawing again! She's released the second in her digital series of vintage cafe' au lait bowl bouquets and is it ever beautiful! She calls it "My Favorite Pair".
"A perfectly piled jumble of ripe pears, African violets, and meandering ribbon comprise the second in my series of vintage café au lait bowl bouquets. Think of the fun you can have with this one! As we burrow into our winter wonderlands, the freshness of houseplants in windowsills is sometimes the only green to be seen! Bursting forth with blossoms in purples and pinks, blues, reds, and whites — the coloring options are endless. This illustration comes with an alternate version with a hand lettered sentiment, and a no-line version of each complete drawing. Pick up Snowdrops and Tea Roses to complete the set, and look for another café au lait bouquet coming in February."
I printed the no-line, no-sentiment version on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics. I needed this to be a birthday card so I stamped a sentiment on the tag, somewhat wonky, but it was the only way it would fit. I don't think the birthday girl will mind.
By printing slightly smaller than I normally do for digital stamps I was allowed room for playing with papers. In fact, I started with the ribbon (must use it or lose it), then chose the papers, constructed the layout and, finally, colored to match. This crafting progression always saves time in the end and makes it easier to choose image colors. Decisions, decisions!
I added rhinestones, too. All these things in my stamp room... I've already purged enough, so the remaining supplies must be used. Vintage supplies for a vintage bowl. Gosh, it's a pretty stamp!
