Hello there and happy Friday to you! How have you been? It's been a little bit since my last post. I am so happy to share a card I made for Power Poppy's Friday post using their amazing Azalea stamp set. I can never thank Marcella enough for creating this stamp set! I have been inspecting our azaleas in the yard and I am happy to report that there are lots of buds! To get me thru until then, I thought I would color up some of Marcella's azalea blooms.
I used a stitched square die for my image panel, stamped the image with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it up with Copics. Next, I added some gold leafing around the edges with a Krylon 18KT gold leafing pen. Lastly, I adhered the image to my card base layered with a bit of patterned paper.
Red azaleas were always my Daddy's favorite. We have lots of azaleas in our yard in pinks, whites, and purples but we also have one red azalea. It was actually there when we bought our house a number of years ago, but I like just having the one....kind of like a special one just to honor him, don't you think? :)
So that is all for my card today, but some of my Bloomie sisters have some beautiful cards for your Friday inspiration. Make sure you leave them a little blog love while you are there! And hey, if you haven't seen Power Poppy's latest digital stamp release....you really need to check it out! You can see all of the details here.
I thank you so much for your visit and I hope to see you again soon. Until then, take care! :)
