Floral Thoughts Series | ft. Inky Antics "Potted Violet"

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

I'm still feeling a bit blah today, the news yesterday still sits with me, and we are in our fourth or fifth day straight of snow and gray skies (I'm pretty sure I get the SADs), so I thought I would share a bright floral to try and help us all through this week. I suppose I assume that you all feel the same as I do, makes me feel not so alone on this side of the keyboard.

While I typically take great care with my Copic colouring, I was very loose and (almost) carefree with this one; especially the flowers. While I like to make it appear as if there are white highlights in my colouring, especially the florals, I think this is the first time I've ever actually left them white. On purpose!

To begin, I stamped the floral portion of this image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. I then masked off the bottom edge and stamped the pot. Both these images are from Inky Antics "Potted Violet" stamp set.

I removed the mask and coloured the image in with Copic markers. I didn't want the flowers to be floating in the middle of nothing, so I used some of the warm grey markers to create a shadow.

I prepped the lower right corner of the panel with my powder tool and heat embossed the greeting from CTMH "Sending Smiles" with gold embossing powder.

To finish off the card, I popped the panel up on some foam tape, I used a thin glittered tape at the top and bottom of the card base and adhered my top panel.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss out on any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
