Everything's Rosy


Today's card was inspired by Power Poppy's month long challenge for May - "Black and White with a Pop of Color." I love how the elegant flowers in my die cut compliment the beautiful rose in the digital stamp. (Of course I chose this stamp to showcase because it's also the Coffee Lover's Spring + Summer Blog Hop!)


To create my card I:
  • printed an image from Everything's Rosy (Power Poppy) on water color paper
    • colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and after blending, added a few highlights with watercolor markers
    • die cut with an stitched oval die
  • die cut Classic Floral Frame (Die'sire- Crafter's Companion) out of black card stock
    • layered my frame over a piece of white cardstock with a die cut black oval in the center
  • added my Power Poppy digi over top
  • created crinkle ribbon bow from Hug Snug Seam binding and Black Soot Distress ink (Ranger)
  • die cut a small rose from the Tiny Tattered florals die set (Tim Hotlz)
  • added a white pearl to the center and layered it over the knot in my bow
