One Petal at a Time

This card is my take on this week's Sketch for You to Try on Jen Del Muro's i{heart}2stamp blog. I colored the flowers and leaves with markers and the bucket with Prismacolor colored pencils. Three tiny self-stick pearls accent the flowers. The rest explains itself, and it goes without saying I love these colors!

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Juniper, Black, and Tulip cardstock; Basic Grey Urban Prairie 6x6-inch paper pad; Black ink pad; Tulip and Garden Green markers; Whipper Snapper Designs Posies for You and Blooming Expressions stamp sets; Kaiser Kraft pearl accents; Prismacolor colored pencils; Gamsol odorless mineral spirits; Blending stumps; Black My Legacy Writer.

According to the calendar, it's almost the middle of June already. Yikes! Speaking of time, I need to get off the computer and go do what I didn't do yesterday. I hope your day is a good one. Thanks for stopping by! Later...

I recognized the bucket right away! That's the one I spent half the day trying to re-create from the card you have us linked to below. I really love this card - you're right; the colors are beautiful!

Have a WONDERFUL day Kathi!

If you check out my blog you will see several cards that look familiar to you, I'm sure. I needed some thank you cards and you make the best cards so I cased them.
