This also features inspiration from one of my fellow ODBD DT mates: Angella Crockett! Angella was chosen as the Featured Stamper for today over at Splitcoaststampers.com! Congratulations Angie!!! You deserve it!!!
And...there are two more gorgeous botanical Easter themed sets as well! What an exciting release! Please check out the blog hop beginning at the Our Daily Bread design's blog that will take place tomorrow, complete with some goodies!
Now, for my design! I began with some very pretty paper from K & Company: 8.5 X 8.5" "Madeline." I chose two patterns from the pad in the same olive colorway, and added borders of pure white cardstock punched with Martha Stewart's "Arched Lattice" border punch. Both the paper and punch are available at the Our Daily Bread designs Store.
My image was stamped on the pure white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copic Sketch Markers. One of the colors that I used was Copic's Wax White...which has a slight greenish tinge...perfect for adding a bit of color, yet still reading white. I uaed it on the blossoms here, and have used it on other lotus, lily, and white colored flowers.
After coloring the lily, I die cut and embossed it with a Spellbinder Classic Oval. A Sheer Creations ribbon bow adds the final touch.
Remember to check back tomorrow, and start the hop at the ODBD blog! I look forward to seeing you!
