Pansy Congratulations

Good morning 🙂  I just had to take another stab at a CAS card….practice makes you more comfortable, right?  For this, I used one of my first Aurora Wings digital stamps, the Pansy Corner 1.  I love pansies….there are such a wide range of colors in these pretty flowers, so I decided to go with fall colors on this card.  I printed the image up on kraft paper, then colored it up with my Prismacolor pencils.  I may or may not have got a grease splat on the background, which may or may not have caused me to add the black banner under the gold “congratulations” that was cut with a Tattered Lace die.  I sprinkled some gold embossing powder around the image, then matted everything in black 🙂  I’m loving the look of these vibrant pansies with the kraft and black 🙂

Golden Rose

Hi there!  I’m on vacation, so am using my time to play 🙂  This card features a gorgeous image from Power Poppy, it’s the Rose and Chamomile Digital stamp.  I love this image, it reminds me of a corsage for a special occasion 🙂  I printed it on kraft paper, and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils.  I did a bit of inking with distress inks around the edges as well.  For the background, I tried inked up an embossing folder with embossing ink, so the de-bossed side would be heat embossed after I added some sparkly green embossing powder to it.  Even though there’s some parts that got embossed outside the pattern, I really like it, as it gives it a bit of a rustic effect.  I matted both pieces with red CS and added some pretty off white sparkly ribbon and a bow.  To finish it off, I found a little gold dragonfly in my stash 🙂
