Fluorescent flower :)


I'm here to share a card I whipped together last night.

I've been noticing a trend of fluoro yellow and black and I have to admit, I love it!

So I went with that colour scheme and pulled out my new Hero Arts Studio Calico Lattice background cling. My good friend Leslie and I did a bit of a stamp swap (I had two of something and she switched for this Lattice background)

SO here it is!

VERY simple to make! I used the Lattice background and some Memento Tuxedo black ink, stamped onto kraft cardstock, which I then cut to size and matted onto black Bazzil cardstock. Those layers were then adhered to a white cardbase.

Next I stamped the Flower image from Pattern Hearts and Flowers, (Memento ink again), cut around it and coloured in using my brightest Prismacolour pencils.

For a finishing touch, I added some Stardust stickles to the petals.

Next I stamped the sentiment panel and cut it out, before adhering it to the centre of the card, then placing the flower image over the top, on dimensional foam tape.

Lastly I added some pearls!

Here is a closer look
 and so you can see the dimension (and a random white dog hair that decided to adhere itself on the back of the flower LOL) Thanks Toby.

I gotta say, i love this card!


Thanks for looking!

Linda xoxo

Ooooh, I love the background just stamped! I always emboss it - I'll have to lighten up a bit. BWAHAHA! And black + Kraft is awesome, as are the fleurs. Nice job!

I love the black stamped on kraft! Will you do a video on how you use your colored pencils? Do you blend a lot? Lovely card :)
