Inspiration for Jan's Digistamps Challenges


Hello everyone!  Today I'm bringing you more inspiration for


I'm using:  Roses #782J

To begin, I composed my image and sentiment and printed it out onto
Neenah 80b Classic Crest Cream card stock.
I trimmed the image just a little and started the coloring of the flowers.


I used Copic markers to color this with and I wanted a peachy look to
the roses.  That was why I chose the use the Cream card stock instead of white.


Copic colors for the leaves:

YG91, YG63, YG67, R02 for tips and edges
Stems:  YG91, W5, W7


Roses:  E93, R00, R02, R05, Glaze with RV00
Shadow around right side of image:  W1

Once my coloring was finished, I decided to add interest to the background by
stamping it with a script background stamp.  The ink I used was a dye ink in a
very pale peachy color.


What ink was on the image itself translated as a texture rather than script.  I then
cut my colored panel down to 4" x 5 1/4" and lightly chalked the edges.  Next
I chose my background paper which was a textured metallic green.


Although the green of this metallic textured paper is a cool green, and the
colored image has warm greens, it stilled worked well color-wise.
I mounted the colored panel onto the textured panel with a liquid glue and
then mounted the that onto an A2 size cream card base.


As a final embellishment I added a few very small clear acrylic drops.
And that finished my project!
