Violets


I tell ya, sometimes life gets in the way of stamping. I started this card this morning, and things just kept popping up all day. I finished it this afternoon, and am now just getting it posted. Whew!!! Anyway, I made this card using SCS's Sketch for today. You can find it HERE. I turned the sketch on its side.

One of my all time favorite paper companies is My Mind's Eye. And their Penny Lane line has a variety of fun colors, and fabulous texture!!! The designs you see on my card are the reverse palettes of the paper not shown in the store link. I loved the subtle stripes of my base paired with the Violets by Flourishes. The image is colored with copics, and has a hint of Ultrafine Glitter to make the blooms and leaves pop. They are also all paper toled. All the edges are ink distressed with Old Paper (Ranger Distress Ink)

Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week is going well!
Happy Stamping!!
Tosh
