Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Remembering You


Hello, I am back today with the next challenge at Just Us Girls. It is time for Photo Week and Ina has chosen a gorgeous pic for us. As soon as I saw it I was inspired by the flowers, the gorgeous colors, and the wall in the background. Ina, thanks for picking something so pretty and easy for us to work with!

I will also be sticking my card in over at Happy Little Stampers for their Anything Goes Stencil Challenge. and also over at Addicted to Stamps and More for Any Occasion.

Card Details: I did a little masking before I began. The wall stencil is from MFT, the Hydrangea stamp is from Gina K, and the greeting is from Verve! I added my favorite dew drops and I was done. I colored my image with both Copics and Prismas. I used a white gel pen to brighten up the centers of the Hydrangeas.

Now, run on over to Just Us Girls and check out how the rest of the team was inspired! And before I go I need to say a Huge Thanks for Loll for being such an awesome guest! I am thoroughly enjoyed all of your work!

Take care, Nanc’
