Brenda U. *Day 2*

Hi folks! You're going to LOVE this card by Brenda, I just know it!
And here's my take:

I began by stamping Penny Black 4156K Star-Inspired with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Copic X-Press It Blending cardstock.  The flower was then colored in with Copic markers.  To create the background I embossed Penny Black 40-048 Paisley Outline with white embossing powder and then applied Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive Distress Ink over the top.  Sentiment by Penny Black, 3393D Tiniest.
Thanks again for visiting. It means so much to me.
See you tomorrow with a special post- a little photo tour of my craft room... :)

I really like this color combo....the "dulled" green makes the blue even more vibrant and eye catching. Nice clean designs too!
