Greetings my friends. I hope you who were mothers had a wonderful Mother's Day! I know I was treated royally and got flowers and jewelry and many cards. And we had some good eating too! That is always a fun thing about a family get together. Our family knows how to put out the feed bag for everyone to enjoy. LOL
Today I made a card for the Mix It Up Monday Challenge for this week at Stamp TV in which we were to make our cards pop with lots of black. I hope that I achieved that look with my card.
I stamped the flowers and the filler images with Gina K. Designs black ink. I then colored in the flowers with my Copics and tried to make it a mix of colors to maket a more brighter look. I also filled in the oval image which was cut with a Spellbinder die by sponging on some Gina K. Designs Ocean Mist ink. My card was layered onto a panel of Gina K. Black card stock and on two of the corners I added black and white plaid ribbon which I also purchased from Gina K. Designs. I added small complimentary gems to each corner before I adhered it to the Gina K. Designs Ocean Mist card base. The sentiment was inked in black and added to a panel of black card stock before placing on the oval panel. All images including the sentiment are from the Gina K. Designs set Wild Flowers by Melanie Muenchinger.
I am glad I got to stamp on this rainy and dreary cold spring day. Making some bright flowers really perked me up and made me feel the chill in the air a lot less. I hope you have a bright and beautiful day as well.
Thanks for stopping by.
