Sheila *Day 2*

Here is our next beautiful inspiration card by Sheila:

I love, love, LOVE Sheila's color scheme! And what a fun shape for her card, too.
Here's my take:


I began by stamping Penny Black 3388K Unfold using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Copic X-Press It Blending Cardstock (die cut using Spellbinders Labels 8).  I then stamped this same image onto thin computer paper and cut out the flowers.  I used these flowers as a mask, adhering them to the card using removable adhesive. Once the masks were adhered, I stamped Penny Balck 3633K Clusters using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I removed the masks and colored the floral images using Copic Markers. The background of the floral piece was inked with Old Paper and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  The larger background (also die cut using Spellbinders Labels 8) was inked with Rusty Hinge, Gathered Twigs, and Wild Honey Distress Ink.  Sentiment by SRM Stickers.

And here's a peek at a card I'm sharing on the Mementos blog today:

Thanks for popping by!
See ya tomorrow with another FAB card by Sheila. :)

I love the vibrancy of your "Unfold" flowers & the way the muted colours of "Clusters" pick up the colours of the larger background base layers. The gem on the twine just subtly pulls the green of the leaves to attention. Terrific.
