CR84FN Color Challenge #34


I have been wanting to play with this color challenge since the first time it was posted at CR84FN, lucky for me it runs for 2 weeks at the moment.  Eventually, it dawned on me that I could possibly make something using a Penny Black stamp that I needed to ink up.  Once again, it's fairly CAS.

Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; patterned paper (Recollections)
Ink: Copic Markers; Memento (Tuxedo Black & Lilac Posies); Antique Linen DI
Stamps: Penny Black (Garden Poems 3869K); SU (Bitty Basics)
Other: Dimensional squares

Forgive me but I had to make the leaves green, so I hope that in this context this qualifies as a neutral colour!

The image is stamped twice and coloured in with Copics.  I then fussy cut the three flowers and adhered them onto the main panel, but only glueing the centres so that the petals float free for dimension.  To help the petals along I curled up the edges a bit.  I inked the edges of the main panel with a bit of Anique Linen.

The little heart and sentiment is from a Stampin Up set that a lovely lady in my suburb gave me.  I stamped the heart on the same light pink cardstock and then stamped the sentiment with a matching dark pink ink and adhered it on top of the heart.  The heart is adhered with dimensionals.

That's it for now!  Thank you for popping by and leaving me your sweet comments!  I love checking my blog at the end of the day and first thing in the morning, and your comments really make it that much more of an enjoyable experience!
