Harlequin

Hi there 🙂 I was honored to be asked to be a Guest Designer for the Addicted to Stamps Challenge this month 🙂 The theme is Flowers, which should end up being a very popular one!!! I love flowers, both in my images and as embellishments, although I do tend to purchase and hoard my pretties more than I should!!! For my card, I used an image by my favorite, Mitzi, of Aurora Wings. Harlequinade can be found in the Etsy store HERE, as well as HERE in the Digi Shop. After coloring the image with my Copics, I tore around the edges and inked them with Distress Ink. I added Liquid Pearls to the image in a few different sittings, so the blobs didn’t run into each other – too much, lol.

I used both a Tim Holtz harlequin die and stencil for the background. I inked the stencil with the same color ink that I used to edge the image and then layered everything over a charcoal mat. I dug into my flower stash and found some yellow roses and a pretty orange blossom (from Petal Lu), that I arranged with some die cut greenery and some swirls of pearls. A few pearls in two of the corners finish the card off 🙂

I’m thinking that this will be a great card for one of my sisters’ birthdays, which is coming up soon….as she loves yellow roses 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
