Happy Tuesday! Busy challenge day around here so I'd better get to it! For this week's Try it out Tuesda #19 over at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and the store blog, Follow Your Heart, our challenge was May Flowers - flower up those projects until they are almost to the point of pollen overload!! That's a challenge I can get behind! I used this adorable new image from Victoria Case for SCACD called Forever Friends. Don't these two cuties look like they are having fun?!? Click the photo for the extra-extra large sized view!
For a little "extra" today, I combined the TIOT with our Twinkling Tuesday date! This week is a sketch so it worked out well for me! Here's the sketch:
So you can see where some of the elements on this card come from!
I stamped my image in Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored with Copic markers. I hand drew the background line and sponged green underneath and added clouds above using my cloud template. Instead of just coloring in the individual flowers all around these two, I went through and added some glue and shook on some Spring Mix Flower Soft. I think it looks more like a bloom of wildflowers surrounding their little party!
I colored a second butterfly wing and cut it out, then added it over the top of the main image using dimensionals. I cut the panel using Labels 4 Nestabilities and mounted it on a Petite Oval. I ran the red piece through the Cuttlebug with Swiss Dots for some more texture and cut the edge with a scalloped border punch. Snipped off the corners and added some Kaisercraft Rhinestones. The colors I used are Summer Sun, Riding Hood Red and Wild Wasabi. I pulled the color palette for the image from the Flower Soft mixture.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you play along with our challenges for today!
