Hi peeps! If you're new here - welcome!
So dreamy, right? I don't have any of those PTI colors, but I chose copics I thought were a nod in the right direction...
I knew immediately, I wanted to stamp a bouquet of flowers - and this bunch in the "friendship jar: summer fillers" is perfect for a quick note-card. (Actually, I'm pretty sure I want to go back and make a full set!) I stamped the jar directly onto the card-base, but stamped, colored, and cut out the bouquet so that I could prop it up on foam squares. I then added a little bow, from the "bells and boughs" set (can you tell I adore that set?), and added the perfect little sentiment into the jar (from Precious Remembrance's "positive thoughts" set.) Also, I trimmed the card to 4 inches by 5 1/2 inches. I love the longer, sleeker look - and the jar 'o flowers fits like a glove across the front.
I don't think you can tell in the photo unless you squint, but I took a water-color brush and a water-color crayon, and added some flecks of light blue over the card-front (before I adhered the flowers.) I also painted a little strip of blue on the left and right edges of the card. The spatter and those painted stripes add a softness, and an extra bit of detail that takes this card to a more special place.
Hope you like it!
