TCC72 April Showers

Hi Friends!!

It’s time for The Card Concept #72 “April Showers” Challenge!  I love this fun spring photo- the polka dot boots, beautiful flowers and colors are just so inspiring!!   I decided to create an Elegant and Classy Mixed Media card using Power Poppy’s digital images.

I am also linking this card to the Simon Wednesday "Anything Goes" Challenge , the TGIF! #104 "Polka Dot" Challenge and the Happy Little Stamper's April Watercolour "Anything Goes" Challenge. 

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to check out the rest of the wonderful Design Team cards at The Card Concept as well as the other challenge sites- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Using your computer along with a printer, print out the Power Poppy digital image of Everything’s Rosy onto white cardstock.

2). Color the floral image using a water brush along with watercolor pencils, water-based markers and adding shadows with a water soluble graphite pencil.   I also used alcohol markers to deepen some of the colors on the petals. 

3). Die cut the image with a stitched rectangle die and layer onto gray cardstock, trim close to the edge.

4). Trim two pieces of designer paper and mount onto gray cardstock, add a piece of 5/8” white satin ribbon over the cut edge and wrap the ends of the ribbon behind the back of the card front.  Mount the card front onto the white card base.

5). Add a white satin ribbon along with the button to the side. 

6). Use an extra fine white paint pen to add highlights to the flowers along with a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the petals to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Everything’s Rosy (digital from Power Poppy)

Ink/Mediums: Printer Ink- black; Derwent® Watercolor and Graphite Water Soluble Pencils, Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, Extra Fine Sharpie® White Paint Pen, Spectrum Noir® Clear Glitter Pen

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray; retired Stampin’ Up! Designer Paper
