Hello friends! I hope that you had a lovely weekend! Here we are with the last week of May already and Summer is showing itself in many ways right now. I do love seeing the flowers everyone has been sharing posts of with their yards full of blooms coming up everywhere!
Today I have this card using a cute Whimsy Stamps Digital stamp:
This cutie was released this month by CC Designs called “Fleur“. (Be sure to check out May’s Digital Release by CLICKING HERE if you haven’t yet!) Be sure to stop back by on Saturday to check out June’s release too!
I just love the ring of flowers in her hair! I’ve actually printed her out twice so that I could cut a few extra flowers to add to the accents of my design!
For my card, I’ve taken a panel from the Rustic Woods and Brick digital papers and used that for the background of my design. I took a marker and added some dash marks for a stitch look. I added this piece to a 5″ square top folding suede card base which I sponged around the edges with some white ink. I did the same for the die cut fence panels and the circle layer behind the image.
I’ve taken a piece of decorative paper from my stash and sponged some ink around it and also wrapped some ogandy ribbon around it before attaching to the card front base. I then die cut some grass to go over my fence border. My image was cut with a stitched circle die and sponged around the edges with the same ink as the decorative paper. This was layered over top of the suede circle panel and these were popped up with some craft foam. I’ve added the bow and the cut out flowers from the extra printed out image and then I’ve added a flower gem in the center of the bow. Each flower including the ones on the image were filled with some Nuvo Honey Gold Glitter Drops. I stamped a sentiment from the Whimsy Stamps Everyday Mini Sentiments clear stamp set with the same suede color ink.
Here’s a closer look at the coloring on this image. I’ve used the following Copic colors to color her in with: (Click on the underlined numbers to view/purchase from Whimsy Stamps)
