Just For You

Ok, I think I like this one. I "borrowed" the layout from "The Joy of Cardmaking". I really like this stamp and try to use it whenever I can. Here's how I made the card:

Cardstock is Prism and Bazzill. The chipboard flower was one I got in the Self-Addressed kit for April. I colored it last weekend at Cat's and I used the new Ranger Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers that Cat has there. I think the color is butterscotch. After the paint dried, I stamped it with Michelle's Little Scroll and Brilliance gold pigment ink. The center of the flower is a leftover brass brad from office supplies. I smooshed it in embossing ink on the pad and then embossed it with black powder twice for allover coverage.

The Just For You and the branch are one stamp. I positioned Big Al on top of the sentiment using my stamp positioner. I colored the images with my Prismacolor pencils. Then I adhered the cardstock and put in the small black brads. I used a fine point black marker to draw the stitching lines around the olive green cardstock and THEN (and THEN? No more And Then!!!) I used my Versamark pad and stamped the shrubbery stamp onto the background. Did I mention all stamps are by justjohanna? No? Well, they are. Card size is 6x6.

That's it. Probably more than you wanted to know, but it's too late now. You've read it already.

Never too much info for me...I'm the one with all the questions. I'm loving what you did with that chipboard piece and the bold colors are great!
