See the Flowers Smiling

This is a fun card that I made Sunday afternoon. I love the concept, but somehow I think I missed the mark with the details. Oh well...I'm sure someone will be happy to receive it!

The main image is Penny Black's Wind Caressed . I stamped it using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with Detail Clear embossing powder. The image was colored using Tombow markers and a blender pen.

The dragonflies are Penny Black's Tiny Dragons . I colored on the rubber with my Tombows, then added a little Stickles Glitter Glue for sparkle.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Anytime Messages . I love that sentiment...and I really love that stamp set!

I added a little Raspberry Liquid Pearls to the stamen of each flower. TIP: In order to get just a very tiny dot, I put a drop of the Liquid Pearls on a piece of scratch paper, then picked up a very small amount with the end of a toothpick. There may be a better way...but that works for me!

The ribbon is from May Arts, and the designer paper is from Stampin Up's Berry Bliss collection.

I got an order from Stampendous last night....the new Changito collection, as well as a few others. You can find them in the store HERE . Just be sure to look toward the end for the new ones.

Thanks for stopping by...I will be back tomorrow.

Until then...

I didn't think the one similar that you made the other day could get any more beautiful, but this one is spectacular! I love the image and your layouts are just the best. Now THIS one is my favorite.
