You Are Loved



Hi friends!  Kim here with a simple floral card to share today!  I was in a coloring mode over the weekend and grabbed a larger image that I could really have fun coloring (with Copics) and shading.  This beautiful image is from the Precious Poppies stamp set, which includes three different floral images and a boatload of sentiments.  Beautiful!

I stamped my image with black Memento Ink, which is the best ink for Copic markers, as it won't smudge or bleed.  Then I colored with my markers, adding a pale blue shadow around the flowers.  Of course I had to ink the edges of the image and sentiment.  I wanted to keep things simple so I just paper pierced the edges around the image and mounted it on a piece of embossed black cardstock.  Clean and simple but oh so elegant, thanks to that stunning image!  (And those pretty flowers makes me think of spring...such a nice thought when one is looking at a foot of snow outside! LOL!)

This is just stunning, Kim! That black embossed frame around those poppies was a beautiful contrast. This card didn't need another thing - simply stated, elegant, and eye catching!

Merry Christmas, Kim!
