Can you believe this? Three posts in one day?? I think I should look out for flying pigs tonight *lol*
I have been a bit poorly and couldn't do a lot apart from sitting wrapped in blankets in my little room so I played some. First I changed my blog design which nearly made my hair fall out! It just didn't do what it was supposed to for quite some time until I figured the problem and then it was done in a few minutes. Hope you like the new look!
When this was done I looked for some challenges and I wanted to use an image from Ruth at A passion for Stamps as I had missed doing that.
Mojo Monday provided a nice sketch:
I took a little bit of liberty with the sketch, changing the square image to an oval one to soften the look a bit. With the stripes it would have been a bit too strict, I think.
I coloured the image with Copics Y17, Y15, Y11 and Y00 for the petals and G28, G24 and G21 for the leaves and stems. The blender pen was invaluable again for the highlights and I used BV000 for some blueish shadows. The background was sponged with Spun Sugar Distress Ink after die cutting but with the paper still in the nestie to give a white border. Matted onto pink scalloped oval and popped up on foam pads. Paper is My Minds Eye from the Lime Twist collection and I used some ribbon from my stash. Sentiment is from a Personal impressions set and punched before popping onto foam pads again.
Very simple card, but I am quite pleased how it turned out.
It also fits the following challenges nicely:
