The temperature here has, for the last couple of days, been in the high 70 degree range. Beautiful weather. I guess I'll have to get out and do some spring yard work. Not looking forward to that.
Todays card is from a stamp that I recieved in one of my birthday cards in January. I don't know what company the stamp is from, but I love it. If you know where the stamp is from, let me know.
The card is a basic card. It is made up from the colors,brown, orange, and yellow. The pattern paper is from "DCWV" called Text and Prints. The "Prints" pad is self adhesive, and is the first time I've worked with it. I know, call me old fashioned.
The Text patterned paper was cut into 1 13/16"X 3.50" pieces, 2 each. The patterned paper was cut to 1 13/16"X1.5" , 2 each,and mounted on a 4.0"X5.25" piece of brown cardstock.
I colored the image with Copic marker, in the following colors;
So let's take a look at the card;
After the image was colored I stippled the edge of the card with Palette Hybrid, Orangie ink. The card was assembled and the Orange stickle was added to the corners of the image placard. The flower was from a Martha Stewart collection. I also added some stickles to the center of the flower.
So that's my card for the day. Yesterday the wife and I attended our weekly stamp club day. I got a lot of images colored, and now I have to make them into cards. I know this is not the normal way to do cards. Most card makers choose their papers first, then color the image to match the paper. I guess I not doing things in the normal way, but it works for me.
Question: who else does it my way??
Have a GREAT DAY!!!
