Hello, friends! I am just in love with my new Prismacolor pencils lately, and I decided to put them to work on a card for a (new to me) challenge. I've been curious to try out some digital stamps, and I just love the photo sketches on the Tiffany Doodles blog. They have a challenge for the month of August to use flowers, so I picked this gorgeous Lenten rose image from Tiffany's site. I also loosely based the card on FTL #105 at clean & simple, but I turned the sketch on its side to better fit the image.
I printed out the image onto PTI's Rustic White cardstock and colored it with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I even added a light blue "halo" around the image to make it stand out a bit more, something I've seen a lot with Copics. It's hard to see in the photo, but in real life it looks so pretty! I had a difficult time photographing this one for some reason.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Bravo Burgundy, Garden Green), Papertrey Ink (Rustic White)
Stamps: Tiffany Doodles (Lenten rose), Papertrey Ink (Signature Greetings)
Ink: Inkadinkadoo (Black)
Tools: Papertrey Ink (scallop border die, Linen & Canvas impression plate)
Accessories: Michaels (pearls), thread
Coloring medium: Prismacolor Premier, odorless mineral spirits
The sentiment is from PTI's Signature Greetings. I added a green scalloped border that I sent through my Big Shot with the Linen & Canvas impression plate, then threw in a few pearls for the finishing touch.
I am certainly not an expert on digital stamps, but this one is so beautiful and highly detailed. I love Lenten roses and colored these to match the ones in my garden!
Thanks for stopping by tonight!
