I've been so busy lately helping my daughter with her wedding preparations before she moves out of town, I've had little time to color. Yesterday, I gave myself a little me time. Colored several versions of Technique Tuesday's Budding Poppies. I used COPIC markers to color this version stamped with black ink. I had the idea of using a pretty black mat. Ended up fussy cutting the image because the colored image with a white border left by the coordinating die didn't look good on the the black. Colored all the edges of the fussy cut image with Memento black brush marker. I glued the stems of the poppies directly onto the black mat then popped the flowers and buds up with black Thin 3D Foam Squares. I glued sheer organza green ribbon to the card base, threaded one end onto cut out openings on either side of the black mat. Then adhered the black mat which was popped up with 2mm black foam onto the Poppy card base. Once secured, I threaded the other end of the ribbon to the left cut out of the black mat and tied a bow.
I heat embossed the sentiment "Just because" from the same stamp set, but cut out the word "Just" as the phrase is too long for where I want to put it. Sentiment was popped up with black foam squares also. Drew random dots to the center of the poppy flowers with Sakura Black Glaze pen for added dimension.
