Tuesday's Creation

I made a card today! I'm so happy. For the past few months, I start a card or two and never finish it. I've got lots of colored images, but no finished cards. That's good and bad, ya know? The stamped and embossed image on this card is one of the newest images from Odd Bird Planet. it's called Kelly's Fairy Flowers and I just love this stamp. I love flower stamps and I think this one is whimsical yet scary. They kind of remind me of Venus Flytraps even though they don't look like a Venus Flytrap. Just a bug-eating plant, I guess. Here's a close-up of the flower part of the card. I stamped the image with Versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear powder. I colored the image with my Copic markers. It's hard to see, but the tops of the flowers have shiny gold pen on them. I was going to use just plain Prism green cardstock, but then I found this printed paper in the stash. I think it goes just fine. Sometimes I'll choose my printed background paper first and then match my Copic colors to the paper. How do you do it? That's it for today. Wow, I posted two days in a row! What will happen next?! Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate it.

I love your scary bug eatin' plant. Really cool image and colored beautifully. I have way more partially made projects around here than finished ones.

Hey, bug eating plants are good! (not too fond of bugs myself). This is very cute (in a scary, bug eating way) and the background paper is perfect. I'm terribly impressed with the bow - such lovely tieing and with velvet ribbon no less. Impressive!

Oh.... um... just added 12 new copic colors to the store........ :)
