Snapgragons




Playing along with the Inspiration Challenge on SplitcoastStampers.
The site Steph chose for us today is called thomaspaul.
You can see what I chose to inspire my card here:
 
The moment I saw those pretty pink snapdragons I thought ...
Yea,  a great chance to use this cute stamp that I've had for awhile now.
My friend Donna saw it at a garage sale and got it for me....
not so much for the flowers but  because she knew that I'd get a kick out of
the other stamp in this set. I used it on the inside...we'll get to that later!
 
To start this card I had to find a clip art picture of snapdragons because
 I had no idea how to color them. Then I printed out my inspiration picture.
 
 
Next, I stamped the design and colored in the background with copic sketch pen N8.
This is called neutral grey, but it sure does look black to me!
The flowers were colored with:
RV52
RV55
RV63
V05
and the leaves were colored with
YG11
YG13
YG17
To finish the front I stamped my go to greeting from impression obsession stamps
and did a little line work....if this scares you, draw it lightly in pencil first.
 
Now on to the inside:
 
I love it!...it's so true! LOL
 
till next time,
Doni
