It's Not A Big Number!

Hi Everyone

Today I am sharing with you a card I made over the weekend - we had about a foot of snow, so I had plenty of time to hunker down in my craft room.

Isn't this just a lovely image?  She was drawn by the very talented Heather Valentin and is available at Lacy Sunshine (this is the official and only authorized shop for Heather's digi images.)  This image is called 'Anastasia with Poppies.

The image is coloured with my ProMarkers, the background is a digital stamp from SU called 'Pleasant Poppies, (also coloured with ProMarkers.)  Here is what I used: Red cardstock (SU), Olive Green Dotted paper (Bazzil), Blue Dotted paper (Teresa Collins 'Everyday Moments'.)  The poppies are cut from a Silhouette file from the online store with my Cameo.  Here is a closer look.

I also took some of the poppies on the image and layered them up using dimensionals.

The '50' I also drew with the Cameo using my Chomas Marker holder, using Copic fineliner and colouring with an Olive Green ProMarker.  The sentiment inside is created the same way - the font is by Lettering Delights 'Tall Girl'.

Of course the card wouldn't be complete without a matching envelope - the side of the envelope is stamped with a Hero Arts stamped called 'Long Stemmed Flowers'.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

  1. Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog - 'Layer It Up'
  2. I Love ProMarkers - 'Anything Goes'
