Hi there everybody and welcome back for another Tuesday post! Jenny is our wonderful hostess this week and our challenge is...
That's right....it's time to pull out those detail scissors and get to cuttin'! I love to fussy cut images, so this challenge is right up my alley.
For my card, I used the Amaryllis image from A Year in Flowers 3. I stamped my image several times on Flourishes Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink then colored them with Copics. I fussy cut the blooms and layered them onto my main fussy cut image. Layering them really made them stand out! I used my Atyou Spica clear pen to add a little glitter to the stamens of the Amaryllis. My card base is made with my all time favorite Marianne Designs die "Anja's Squares" and of course, I had to edge things in my Krylon Gold Leafing pen. My sentiment is stamped on a Spellbinders label die cut and I gold leafed the base of that too! I sponged a little green ink on my label and behind the blooms for a little extra color and added some pearls to finish things off.
Here is a little close up of that beautiful image. I love the fonts on these labels....so pretty! It reminds me of a framed botanical print. Here is a little better view so you can see the layers on the blooms...
There was definitely some fussy cutting going on around here for this card..lol! Well, that is all for my card this week, but you really should check out what my team mates have created for you. I am sure that there are some real beauties for you to see! Make sure you leave them some blog love while you are getting your inspiration and then get to fussy cutting your own image and play along with us! Don't forget to link up your creation for a chance to win a prize. I can't wait to see what you create....see you next week!
