I hope you have had a fabulous day! It felt so good for me to get back into my craft room with inspiration and determination! The motivation has been lacking quite a bit lately and I've felt like what I've been making has been less than par...and it hasn't made me happy. So it felt great to work up a card that I love and to be totally proud of it!
Snow White image from Krista at Saturated Canary as a prize and I just love her! I again fussed with my colored pencils to get the coloring right, and while it's not perfect, I'm still happy with it :)
Most of my day was spent learning how to make those roses though. Since my cricut died, I haven't really been able to find a quick way to make roses and that has really bummed me out since I love making my own flowers. I had bought a few flower punches so I could make cute little buds, but I wanted to make some larger roses as well. So I found a 5 petal image on the internet and turned it into a die cut file for my Cameo. Then I started with the punches for the centers and made each layer of the cut file slightly bigger in Silhouette Studio. It took me a few tries to get the staggering correct, but once I worked it out, the results were perfect!
I took some of my Copic sketch markers-R81, R85, R27 and colored in the layers of the roses to give them a two-tone affect. I just love doing that! Probably one of my favorite ways to use the few copics that I have.
Then I cut out a leaf flourish to tuck behind the flowers and arranged everything together!
Love love love this card! I'm so happy with how it turned out and I hope that inspiration streak will continue as today was really fun :)
