A Beautiful Day!

April 21, 2015
Hello, everyone ... Sharon Harnist here and it is, indeed, a beautiful day here in south Texas!  I hope it is in your part of the country, as well.  Another reason it is a beautiful day ... this is my first post as a new design team member for Pink Ink Stamp Company and I’m thrilled to be on the blog today!  

My card today uses a brand new beautiful Spring/Summer release stamp, Summer Planter (click on any photo for a larger view):

I stamped the flower planter onto Copic X-Press It Blending Card with Copic-friendly Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Sketch markers. Here's a quick step-out of the markers I used to color each of the flower types:

Below left, the C1 marker was used to give a little shading to the white 8-petal flowers, and Y15 was used for the centers. Below right, Melon and Lemon Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pens were used to color the stamens on the orange lilies and centers of some other flowers.

Above left are the colors used for the planter box. Above right shows the C0-C1-C4 combo used for shadows underneath and behind the planter.

To finish the card, I oval die cut the flower planter image and mounted it with Copic X-Press It Foam Tape to the kraft card base. Yellow scalloped and pink die cut cardstock pieces were layered behind the image, to enhance some of the flower colors.

Finally, the pretty Have A Beautiful Day Pink Ink sentiment was gold heat embossed on the yellow scalloped cardstock piece. 

Thanks so much for joining me today!
