Crafty Cardmakers 85 Blooming Images

Our challenge to you for the next two weeks at Crafty Cardmakers is ‘Blooming Images’. We want to see your creations that have a flower, or flowers as the main focal point. So a single rose for example, or a bouquet of flowers, or vase of flowers is fine. A person holding a flower is not!

We are sponsored by both Crafts and Me with three digistamps from their extensive range and also by a mystery donor who has donated a fabulous set of dies….. please see the CCM blog for details.

CCM 85

For my blooming birthday card I have used some digital paper from another of our Sponsors at CCM, The Paper Shelter, from their digital kit called ‘Love Letters’. It seemed just perfect for what I had in mind. The image itself is from Sweet N Sassy. I coloured it with copics, and then cut it out with a spellbinders oval due. I inked around the edges of the image with DI in spun sugar. I couldn’t find any paper to match, so I took one of the colours from the leaves and just coloured the very edge of the scalloped mat and the mat beneath the backing paper in Wax Green copic pen. A few card candi in the corners finished it off.

I decorated the inside to match, but instead of an image I stamped a birthday greeting.
