Flowers in a Frame





Hello!  My card today is for the challenge at Power Poppy -Frame It Up- Simply frame your image on a card, decorate a frame or frame your stamped piece as a bit of home décor.  I printed Power Poppy's Camellias Digi on watercolor paper and colored with Distress Inks Picked Raspberry, Forest Moss, and Peeled Paint using a watercolor brush.  I then framed the image with a decorative 5x7 mat that I purchased for 50 cents and have had in my stash forever.  I then placed this in a brass frame so that I can use  it on a side table as a bit of décor.  I photographed the framed image without the glass to avoid glare.

Spring Tulips

 Hello!  Taking time out from spring chores to create a card for some of my favorite challenges.  This was made for the challenge at The House That Stamps Built using Repeat Impressions stamps Tulip Bouquet on the front and one of their sentiments inside.  I stamped the image with Memento Espresso Truffle and colored with Copics.  I used Spellbinders Divine Eloquence dies to cut the image on White CS and the frame from GKD Yellow CS and used GKD Green CS for the base. Finished with pearls colored pink with Copic marker.




Challenges:
The House That Stamps Built: M1017 Tic Tac Toe Challenge-used Flowers, Pearls, and Frames.
Mod Squad: Let's Color Challenge.  Used Copics to color the image.
