Eastern Blooms


Today's card is one I made while playing with my new Stampin' Up goodies. I started by inking up the branch from the Eastern Blooms set with Chocolate Chip and Ruby Red markers and stamping on white cardstock. Next I added some color to each bloom with a Pumpkin Pie marker and a little shading to the branch with a Going Gray marker. I stamped just the one flower from the trio of flowers stamp and then added color with a Pretty in Pink marker before cutting out. Although you can't really tell from the photo (still trying to figure out the new camera), the flower is popped up on a dimensional next to the Best Yet sentiment.

The designer papers are from the Bella Rose DSP pack and everything is matted with Basic Gray cardstock. I added a few piercings, a little sparkle with some Crystal Effects/Dazzling Diamond mixture, then added a little Riding Hood Red Taffeta knotted bow with a hodgepodge clip glued below it with Crystal Effects. And for the finishing touch I stamped the branch again in the corner of the inside of the card.
