Stampin Up Morning Soft
I received my new Stampin Up Morning Soft stamp set. This is a fabulous morning glory stamp, so perfect to color. I stamped it on Curious Cryogen White cardstock with Brilliance Graphite Black ink. Then using Copic markers, I laid a base color of BV000 Iridescent Mauve, then created the shading with BV01 Viola and BV04 Blueberry. I used Y15 Cadmium Yellow for the center of the flowers and the leaves. The green on the leaves is G21 Lime Green which I colored over with Y15 Cadmium Yellow to blend it all in. The last step was outlining the entire flower with C1 Cool Gray. When I was coloring my rhinestones to match, I accidentally flicked some ink onto the white cardstock. So I got out my Stamps by Judith Dots peg stamp and added dots around the flower, problem solved. Both the white square and the scalloped square were created using Spellbinders Nestabilities. I found some lovely designer paper, origin unknown, that I layered onto a 5 1/4 inch square card, punching out the corners with my EK Success Concave paper shaper. I colored the ribbon with my Copic marker to match and added some rhinestones to the corners.
