Flower Challenge...

I'm taking up my friend, Tricia's, flower challenge.

The Morning Glory stamp is from Stampendous, and is the one my mom gave me for Christmas. I stamped it in VersaMark ink on vellum paper, then embossed it with SU!'s black embossing powder. I then flipped the vellum over and colored the back side with watercolor pencils (Crayola and Staedtler) and an SU! blender pen. I mounted the vellum on a piece of white cardstock, adhering it with Scotch double sided tape placed on the back of the image. (That way you can't see the tape. I then placed the silver eyelets. I matted the image with SU!'s Elegant Eggplant and Lavendar Lace cardstock, then mounted it on another piece of Elegant eggplant. I'm not sure who made the ribbon, but it was part of the blog candy I won from my friend, Tricia (the same mentioned above!) It seemed to work PERFECTLY with the image. I then mounted the silver button (after clipping off the loop for the thread) with glue dots. It was a little too bland, so I stamped the "Love You" (SU!'s Fancy Flexible Phrases) and punched it out with my SU! punch.

I have several more flower cards, but I love the simple elegance of this one. I also enjoyed the coloring... I haven't done that in a while; choosing rather to stamp images in color and leave them that way!

So, Tricia ~ how did I do? :-)

You did marvelous!! :) What a pretty card. I'm sure it will be a blessing to someone. I haven't done coloring on the back of vellum for awhile. I'll have to put it on my list of things to do. :)
