Now for my fun little card!


I wanted to make sure that I had ribbon to match my project, so what better could I do than to pick out the ribbon first! Yep, the ribbon is what inspired this card!

From there I created my own pattern paper with a Creative Palette Rectangles, Stack Art Regal Bird Stamp Set, Pansy Spray and some acrylic paint. I never know exactly what's going to happen when I start making a print, but this one sure came out better than I thought it would.

Once the paint dried I stamped Pansy Spray in black on the monoprint. A series of acrylic paint on the filigree stamp in the Regal Bird set, made soft layers of fun. Then I prepped the surface for embossing with Detail White Embossing Powder and the filigree stamp.

My vase is stamped twice, once for the whole image and a second for the rose bloom. I colored with Copic markers from the Violet, Blue Violet, Blue-Green and Green families. They were trimmed and stacked together with various foam adhesive squares.

The Gorgeous sentiment is stamped on white paper and trimmed to look like a pennant tail and then the ribbon was added around the monoprint before gluing down to the matted card base.
