Hello, my friends! Welcome back to my blog...how are you doing? I truly hope that you are all feeling and doing well. I know this #stayhome thing can be hard for some people, especially those who live alone. I'm sending positive thoughts and good vibes out there to all of you! :) So, let's keep the positivity going, shall we?
Today I want to share with you what I made for the new release at Bugaboo:
This image is called Flower Trio, and it should be in the store for you to grab. Aren't these flowers unique-looking? I love all the little details that make them special. I was inspired by these yummy plaids in the Lawn Fawn 6x6 Perfectly Plaid Rainbow pad to color the image in purples and greens, with yellows for an accent color. Since some parts of the images are kinda small, I chose to use my Prismacolor colored pencils as my coloring medium instead of alcohol markers. I know, shocker! I really like the end result, although I do have trouble not using a heavy hand while coloring. I also have a lead foot while driving, if that's any indication! LOL!
I grabbed a matching purple card stock from my Recollections stash, and used that as a mat for the patterned papers, and a scalloped mat for the image panel, all made using Spellbinders dies. The sentiment was stamped in Dusty Concord Distress Oxide ink, and it comes from a stamp set I have had for-EVER called Greetings, from The Paper Company. I used to get this brand at JoAnn Fabrics all the time when I first started stamping, and this set in particular still comes in handy! For the inside sentiment, I used a combination of words from the Happiness and Merry and Joy stamp sets from Honey Bee Stamps, also stamped in Dusty Concord Oxide ink. Sorry, I didn't think to take a picture of the inside!
