Adios to In Full Bloom!

This is another set that will be retiring. It was such a fun and yet elegant set. I have seen LOTS of samples using this set on SplitCoastStampers. I even CASED a clock off Split Coast using this set. I will take a picture of it and post it tomorrow along with the Blog Candy winner!!! I know you're all waiting with anticipation to find out what that piece of whatever is!!! LOL

So now onto this card! I used the new designer paper in the Spring Mini catalog. The pink is actually the backside of the striped paper. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the flower stem. Now that I know how to work that thing. I used it MANY times when doing the Fun Filled background. UGH!!! Good thing I only chose to redo the card 5 times!! LOL

I used a blender pen for my coloring and around the edges of the flower I took the writing end of the marker and filled in the areas to give the flower a bit more depth. Stamping, coloring and cutting out another flower would also give it depth but I didn't want it to stand out that much. I wanted to keep it soft looking. I used Bashful Blue to color around the flower for the shadowing. A layer of Old Olive (because the card itself is in Old Olive) and some black brads I made using black embossing powder and regular office fasteners! Be sure to hold them with a clothes pin, they get VERY hot! For the "For You" I used the set "Fun Filled". Another set that is retiring.

Thank you for checking in!
