Heartwarming Friendship

Hello everybody from sunny Australia. It's Donna, and I have a card to share with you. The cold has finally broken here, and I’m enjoying a hot day (from inside, and with a cool drink - I don’t really want to get hot; it’s just nice to know that I could if I wanted to!)
I really am loving this Friendship Blessings stamp set. I love the height on the flowers, and the beautiful clean lines.

I have googled crocuses to colour my image. They seem to come in two main colours - yellow and purple. I absolutely loved the yellow crocuses, but when I  looked in my stash of Copics, I had very little in the way of yellows, so I went with purple instead.
I coloured the image with Copics, and rather than blending them as I usually do, I built up layers of colour using thin sweeps of the marker, leaving the striations visible, just as they are on the real flowers. I really love this look, and these flowers really showed if off well.



The background was created by stamping the same image on a piece of cardstock and heat embossing it in white. I then went over the paper in a yellow distress ink, putting more colour at the top and less at the bottom to give a subtle ombré look.
The sentiment comes from the same Friendship Blessings stamp set. There are many lovely sayings in this set, and I find myself reaching for it a lot.


Finally, to assemble the card, I cut stitched square panels for the background and sentiment. I fussy cut around the crocuses, but didn’t cut between the stems. That’s where the slightly larger sentiment panel comes in, allowing the white backgrounds to blend.
After cutting the flowers, I drew around all the edges with a black marker to give a professional edge to the image.

The final touch? Some Kennedy Grace sequins! I used a lovely little mix called Lemon Sorbet just because you can never have too much sparkle!

Well that's all from me today.

Until next time, may friendships warm your heart.

Blessings,

Donna

Don't you just love the beautiful Fall colors in this pic! Here's what I've made for you today:


 I stamped the flower from the Just A Rose stamp set with Memento London Fog using second generation stamping (for no-line coloring) and colored with Copics YR68, Y38, Y35 and YR31 for orange and YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for green. I stamped and embossed the same flower with Wow! White pearl on black cardstock of size 4" x 5.5".

I inked the left edge of the top folding A2 card base with the DI Spiced Marmalade and adhered the black panel on it. I mounted the rose with foam tape and adhered the sentiment with Sc…
