Diagonal Corner Technique

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Shelly of Shelly's Images about a card I had entered into her challenge. She really liked how I added a diagonal corner mat on the image.  She asked me if I could make a card using one of her images for her June Newsletter.  Here is what I came up with....


I printed her Sunflower image onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Watering Can - C0, C1, C3, Y28
Sunflowers - Y06, YR68, E99
Leaves - G21, Y19
Shadow - B41

I like to use the diagonal corner mat when an image is heavy on one side, it gives the image balance.  The DP is from the Basic Grey June Bug 6x6 collection.  The border punch is from Martha Stewart - Arch Lattice.  I airbrushed the gems to match and added a sunflower charm from my stash.  Finished size is 6" square.
