A Lovely Day!

Hello and happy Sunday to all of you … I’m so excited to be here this month as the Flourishes Limelight Designer! One of the things I love about Flourishes is the fantastic colorable images. So I wanted to start off the month with one of my favorite floral images, the Lenten Rose set:

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white card stock and then colored with some of my very favorite Copic marker color combinations:

I airbrushed the background behind the flowers with Copic E41, to match the background paper. These darling papers are from the My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found-Blush 6×6 paper pack. I couldn’t stand to cut very much of the pretty paper, so this is a whopping 6-inch square card! Or maybe I’ll just frame it, for a pretty Springtime piece of artwork to display in my home!

Thanks so much for stopping by today … I look forward to seeing you back here each Sunday in January!
~ Sharon

    Totally beautiful….I love those color choices. Not many people use those RV colors so it’s so nice to see a card done with them.

    Stunning! I think you should frame it–it’s way too pretty to close up in an envelope or put in a drawer. Gorgeous coloring. ~hugs, Cheryl

  14. Jackie W says:

    FRAME IT! It’s much too pretty to give away :) I have a friend who always takes the cards I give her and incorporates them into some kind of a picture. She does some really neat collages with old window frames and cards and such that people give her.

  15. Jaw dropping gorgeous Sharon!!!
