and welcome to my first

I loved the Wonderful Meeting digi stamp from Fabrika Fantasy so much that I made 2 cards!

This is a 7" x 5" card - I inked the edges with Stampin Up! Marina Mist
Then added a layer of brown card
and a paper from For the Love of Stamps Perfectly Natural pad
I then made a "belt" about 1" from the paper
Backed it onto the brown card and positioned onto the base card.
I printed the image a suitable size for the card
and started to colour using copics (listed below)
I made a mask to cover the image and coloured the background
with Soft Sky ink, die cut the oval and edged with Marina Mist ink.
The flowers are from an Elizabeth Craft Designs die - Bunch of flowers
I cut them from white card and edged with Marina Mist ink
The centre is a blob of nuvo crystal drops covered in glitter.
Then I added some tattered lace cherry blossom in brown.
The sentiment is from "vintage affections" from LDRS

Copics:- Y21, YR3, YR23, Y28
E21, E51, E11, E31, E50
B16, B29, B14
W00, W1, W3, W5, W7
E74, E77, E79

I also water coloured the image.
This is a 7" x 7" card with a pink and blue layer on the base card
And a starfish charm, found on an auction site, tied with bakers twine - love charms.
I coloured the image using Stampin Up! watercolour pencils,
surrounded it with misty grey and toasted rose chalk cloud blending ink and
stamped the sentiment with coloured ink then clear embossed it.
