We are more than halfway through January and this is my first project post! Yikes! We traveled to Buffalo for Christmas and I've also been making reservations, learning lots online, and shopping for our first ever cruise! Just a 4-night blues cruise to Nassau, but when it's your first time, boy, we are clueless!
Anyway, this is one of the cards we created this month at stamp camp. The color inspiration was a happenstance. I arrange my card stock in color families and in alphabetical order within the family and have been doing it that way for almost 17 years. It just so happened that these three stacks ended up in a kind of stair-step on the shelf and voila! I like bright colors, anyway, so...
As you can see, it's really pretty simple, but what you might not see in this shot is that the larger blooms are enhanced with the Shimmery Crystal Effects from the Holiday Catalog. The large poppy was stamped with Stazon onto watercolor paper and watercolored, as were the leaves. Measurements and products to follow.
