Hope you are a having a good weekend. We walked as a family in a community race this morning and sold Girl Scout cookies after that so it has been a busy but good day!
I created two cards for the Make It Monday #276 Kraft & Colored Pencils Challenge this week.
I rarely use Kraft card stock and it is a shame because it makes the most beautiful cards!
Melissa provided a great video this week using Kraft card stock and colored pencils. Check it out!
I stamped and embossed four poppies from Unity Stamp company. These are some big, bold poppies!
I colored three images with a red watercolor pencil and the fourth one I colored orange.
I used a Dove Blender pen to smooth the color out a little.
The flowers were cut by hand and grouped together to make a large cluster.
I had to create a 5.5x5.5 card to fit the blooms.
After cutting a piece of Kraft dotted paper I tied a piece of Kraft ribbon (from the great PTI sale) and mounted it all to Pure Poppy card stock.
The image was embossed in gold and matte gold sequins were scattered around the flowers.
Since I had one poppy left over I made a second card.
This one features Smokey shadow card stock and dotted paper. After attaching to the base I added the orange poppy and the Thanks was die cut from Soft stone.
The bow was made with New Leaf ribbon.
