****JustRite055 Floral Blue
Oh what a challenge! Light -Medium Blue, Ivory, and Tan. with accents of brown and/or black.hmmm.... I didn't have any of the copic markers,..I only had one piece of paper that seemed to match the blue, and I didn't have the stamp set (yet) that I wanted to use. So, I thought and thought. I took the floral stamp from Just Rite's Beautiful Blossom Set and stamped it in Blue on a medium blue piece of cardstock. Carefully using an exacto knife I cut the floral image out and off-set it just a bit. I backed the cutout area with a pearlized ivory paper and used a bit of ivory Liquid Pearls to color the centers of the flowers and the bow. Then I set myself to work and made a bunch of of paper flowers, used punches to punch out leaves and butterflies, used pearl dewdrops, swarovski crystals, and a rhinestone swirl (always need a bit of glitz) and created the finished card. Tan cardstock was used for the card base with coordinating tan an blue cardstock accents. May Arts ivory silk ribbon creates a beautiful finishing bow. Lots of detail on this card! Oh, I forgot the accent of feathers!
