Wild Roses

I decided to join in on the Mod Squad Challenge-Simple Focus and this was the card I made for it. I used the Gina K. Designs Whimsical Wildflowers set and I immediately went to what I think was the wild rose design. I am a little bummed though as I think my Copics I used smeared with the black ink I used. It is not supposed to do that but for some reason today they did. But I went with it anyway. I think from now on I will stick with my Bic and Sharpie pens. I seem to have better results with them.



I wanted to make the flowers pop more so I took my blending brushes and added a bit of blue ink around them. Then the panel was added to black and then from there to the white card base.

Thanks to all who commented and let me know my Follow It link was up and working correctly. That made me happy. And, to all of you who had followed by email before soon the way you signed up will no longer be working so if you want to continue to follow by email you have to use the Follow It option instead.

Well, take care and thanks for visiting. I love to read your comments.

God bless, Verna

Beautiful card, Verna. I love the colours you’ve used for the lovely flowers. I usually use a Memento ink pad for stamping if I’m colouring with alcohol pens. xx

Lovely design with the blue background is perfect. I just joined Follow it! It was not visible yesterday for me. Still have not put it on my blog.

This is beautiful. Your coloring looks great; if there was smudging, I can't tell. Looks like intentional shading. The blue background looks great, too.
