Hiya everyone! I've been a busy busy sister this week working on a deadline at the day job, preparing for a girlfriend weekend and a 50th b'day celebration next week for the hubster. I am not quite a cougar, but I am a couple years older than him although you would never know that from looking at us! LOLOL!!!! Now I'll leave it up to you to decide whether I think I look younger, or he looks older! Haaahaa!
All kidding aside, I do have something be-uuuu-ti-ful to share today and that is another Paula image, this is the poppy from Paula's Framed Florals. I am so smitten with the simplicity and beauty of these little stamps.
I decided to let the poppies take center stage here and matched my patterned paper to the background colours I used on the image. I used a lot of pencil here so didn't keep track of my copics but I will say that I did start my background with copics. Feathering some BOOO from the flowers out, and some YG00 (or YG0000?) from the corners in. Then I added some BVO1 from the flowers out. After that was done, I did add some pencil to deepen the background shading. I really wish you could see this one up close and personal because the picture makes the poppies look a bit drab, but take my word...they just pop out off that card! This is also just a bit smaller than my normal 5.5" cards and I made this one 5 1/4" square.
I'll be back on Friday with the Bellarific challenge and remember, it's a sketch so NO EXCUSES, all the hard part is done for ya! Finally, for you AJ lovers, I don't think I'll be here Monday with that challenge because I have a busy weekend ahead of me, but the love is still there, and I'll still be stalking Emily's blog to see what everyone came up with.
See ya soon!
