Framed Crocus

Julie Warner -
I made this for a couple of challenges on Splitcoast today…the Inspiration Challenge (IC376), and the Love Fest (LOVEFEST2013C). For the IC challenge, I was inspired by this Round Floral Box. I really liked the red/orange background surrounding the flowers so I stamped my crocus, masking as I went, and colored in the area surrounding them w/ Copics. They looked a little too plain to me so I added just a touch of green shading to the flowers. A few crystals were added for the bling part of the Love Fest challenge.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I added a few die cut layers using the Marvelous Squares set from Spellbinders, but I had to resize them to make them rectangular. The little green doodads are part of a Cheery Lynn crochet border die. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
