Pretty Lily

Sunday, March 7, 2010
I am getting into the spring mood, I'm Tired of the winter already. I know that we have atleast another month before we get rid of the icky weather, but I'm in the mood for SPRING.

Todays card reminds me of spring. The stamp set comes from GinaK Designs and is called "Friendship's Garden" there is about 6 flowers in this set and some sentiments. I have chosen the lily for todays care. The frame for the flower was cut out using the " Martha Stewart Combo Double Loop Punch Set" it gives a very airy effect to the mat.

The mat wash airbrushed with Copic markers in a YG03 than in a E33. The inside of the mat was stamped in in a Burnt Sienna with a stamp set from "The Angel Company" called "Script Background". The mat was cut from Ivory Cardstock.

After the card was assembled the entire card was lightly sprayed with Tattered Angels, Glimmer Mist, Gold.

"Pretty Lily"

The image was colored with Copic Markers, of course. In the following colors;

Pot; E09, E13,E21
Leaves; YG06,YG45
Flower; Y00;Y08

The lilly was cut out using my favorite cutting mat, a glass mat, and an Xacto knife. I you have not tried one of these "Glass Cutting Mats" try one. They make cutting out images very easy. The glass mat eliminates the drag on your Xacto blade that you get with a standard cutting mat. Gon't worry about breaking the Glass Mat, just store it in the box that it came in. I have had mine for about five years, and it as good as new.The image of the lily was popped up from the mat. The background paper used was from "DCWV" called "Text Prints" it comes in a pad.

Hope you enjoy my spring card, please leave comments to let me know what you think.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!
