A Peony Because You Are Special

How about a second one for this week?

I have been trying to get back to the clean and simple style for card making. I have plans starting in November and December to participate in a couple of arts and crafts festivals. I have not been able to go to these events because of my health. I love being in that atmosphere and I think that I am finally strong enough to try again.

This A2 card was a challenge, but I think I finally like it. I have been stocking up stamping supplies with Gina K Designs. You all need to check out her site. Her illustrators are amazing, her cardstocks are to die for, and her inks match the cardstock perfectly. She even has the A2 envelopes to match the cardstock and most of the cardstock is “base weight,” not just the 80# weight.

Let’s get on with my card. The stamp set, Stately Flowers 8, was designed by Melanie Muenchinger. I decided on the Peony for this card. Check out Melanie’s YouTube channel here. Also, head over to Gina K Designs and check out Melanie’s stamps here. I first stamped the image on X-Press It Cardstock with Momento ink. From there I proceeded to complete my Copic Coloring.

 Copic markers used for this card are:
Peony: RV91, 93, 95, 99 + Y18;
Leaves: G20, 21, 24, 29;
Background: BG000, 10, 93, B02, + blender.

Other supplies are:
Liquid Pearls: Buttercup;
Border die: Alison’s Ribbons;

The challenges that I will be entering are: 
Artistic Expressions – Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart – Always Anything Goes
Incy Winchy Designs – Color Combo (I used 3 colors)
Colouring in Scrapland – Clean & Simple

I guess that’s it for today. I hope you come back soon for a visit. If you have any questions, please contact me.
