oh for those lazy hazy days of Summer .. .. and a garden to sit in making daisy chains, well that might not be on the agenda for this year as the garden is more than likely going to be a building site! Although this cute LOTV stamp came out awhile ago I've only just added it to my collection. It's quite detailed and I can see from my close up that I have missed the odd area - call it artistic licence! I've coloured with Copics in shades of red, cream and sage green for the Colour Create challenge, although I've not included the optional buttons. For the reds I used R24, R27 and R29; the greens are E81, YG91, YG93, YG95 and YG97; the creams are YR21, YR23, YR24, going into brown shades E35, E37 and E39.
Here's the card. I've used another freebie piece of patterned paper, this time by Serif, matted with sage green cardstock. I've embellished with satin ribbon, a strip of red card punched with a Martha Stewart lace punch, Marianne diecut fronds from LR0106 and Nellie's Choice punched and embossed little red flowers and creamy yellow butterflies. I did the colour enhance thingy in Photoshop and the creamy shades have gone a tad yellow/mustard - they are not quite so bright in real life .. .. but you could say they are a good West Country clotted cream colour!
I had planned on sharing this card with you earlier today but had to finish up some tiling .. .. and got a bit of grit in my eye so have been in agony this evening. I think it's out now, but the eye is very bloodshot and quite swollen, but at least I can see to type and hopefully it will be better in the morning.
The Lollipop Crafts and the Fairytale blog challenge is to use something new - my stamp is new, and the freebie paper is new too.
