Sweet Simple Things
Power Poppy's challenge this month is "black and white with a pop of color." I have several digital stamp sets from them that haven't seen ink, and this is one of my favorites. I decided to print it off and try my hand at this month's theme.
By changing up the framing, I created two similar but slightly different summer cards. This first one is framed entirely by the vine die cuts and the one below has a few vines and the frame turned sideways.
I added some extra dimension to the vines by applying faux stitching with a white gel pen.
I printed "Sweet Simple Things" on watercolor paper and colored it in with prismacolor pencils. After blending, I added a few highlights with watercolor markers.
Dies: Romantic Vines (Spellbinders), Sentiments Five (Spellbinders), Square Die
Ink: Prismacolor Pencils, Watercolor Markers, White Gel Pen
Stamps: "Sweet Simple Things" (Power Poppy)
