Coloring on Dark Cardstock

Sorry I've not been around....I was away since Wed for work!! I was just playing around trying to use up some of the item in my "USE UP" basket. You know, the place where you put stamped images you didn't us, pieces of background that were left over from other projects, punched shapes that didn't get included.... sheesh, my basket it soooo full it is overflowing!! Well, this image had been stamped on Mellow Moss cardstock and was a leftover piece from a technique I taught at our SCS get together last summer. The technique is Coloring on Dark Cardstock and you can another card I have made using this techique HERE. It is pretty simple to do but is a dramatic effect. It is nice to do something different like this once in a while! Behind the flower is a frame stamped and inside that I smudged Pastels to blend with the image colors and the background paper! The flower image is popped up on a few pieces of cardstock glued together. Supplies: Cardstock-Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss (SU!); Designer Paper-Stella Ruby (Basic Grey), Stamps-flower (Magenta), Paper Tray (Papertrey Ink), Around and About(SU!); Ink-Basic Black (SU!); Accessories-Prismacolor Pencil Crayons, Pastels (SU!). Thanks for visiting.

Lovely card. I am very fond of Lily of the Valley flowers. My birth month flower and my mother used to grow them.
