Welcome to day 2 of Shady Tree sneak peeks. Nancy's flowers have long been favorites and this new image in the Backyard Springtime set now joins the list.
This card sort of evolved and in the end I was just smitten. It started with the paper, I loved the vintage feel and colors it had. Then I stamped and colored the image with Copics. The centers of the flowers have black glaze pen dots added which adds a nice touch, hard to see in a photo though. After it was cut out I looked for how to place a sentiment and not much was tickling my fancy. I started to sponge the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and that bottom right corner looked bare. The idea came to me to add numbers for postage, the size was perfect. I unearthed my postage edge scissors (do you even remember those??) and bingo! A little crinkle ribbon and some leaf stick pins and it was done. It reminds me of my great grandma, I can even smell her rose powder, lol.
