Bloomin' Monday


Hi All!! Hope all the mothers had a FABULOUS Mother's Day. Mine was low key but so nice. We order some yummy food and watched movies with the boys. It was nice. Anyhoo, today I have a bloomin' card to share. I features the most beautiful Stargazer Lily from Starving Artistamps. I simply fell in love when I first saw it. (Stargazers are one of my favorite flowers.) I wanted to make the flower look 3D ,or as if it was growing out of the card, so when I finished coloring it in with my Copics I used an exacto knife to cut it out. Then I curled the edges and glued the center onto white card stock. Once the glue was dry I continued to curl the petals until they where just right. Lastly, I added some stickles on the petals. I really like how it turned out. The patterned paper is from SEI's "Jolie Chocolat" collection. I also used my cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder to give more texture to the card. I finished the card by added some beautiful pink dew drops. I really think they complete the card. Well that is all for today but tomorrow is TCP Tuesday so you won't want to miss it!
Hug,
