FS224 Missing You

Hello Everyone!!  It's been a loooooong time since I did the Featured Stamper challenge, so it was great to get back for one this week!  This week it's Carly (aka Paperinbloom), who has a very CAS style.  I did try to go more CAS, but I am who I am and this is how it turned out!  :)  I chose her Wishing You card, keeping the same colours and basic layout and floral theme, adding a few more layers, DP and some texture.

I actually started by stamping the Orchids by Flourishes in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and colouring with Copics (V01, V12, V04, V05, V09, C3, G82, G85, 0) then cutting it out with scissors and scalpel.  The base is made of black, Old Olive and Cottage Wall DP.  Around this I added some white crochet lace.  I couldn't find any ribbon to match my Orchids (and anyone who has seen my ribbon collection would be shocked to hear that!), so I grabbed some white satin ribbon and coloured it with a V12 Copic Marker and added it to the top of the crochet.  The next panel is made of white and a piece of black that I've embossed with the Victoria EF and then popped it up on foam tape.  Next I popped the Orchids up, also on foam tape.  Finally I stamped the sentiment and cut it out into a notched tag and secured it with a bow.

Stamps - Orchids, Tag Lines (Flourishes)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Black, White, Old Olive, SU Cottage Wall DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Victoria EF, White Crochet Lace, White Satin Ribbon, Scissors, Scalpel, Bow Easy, Foam Tape.

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and hope you are Inspired to Stamp!!  :)

Such a BEAUTIFUL card Kathy. The flowers are so perfectly done with copics. I just saw you have some tutorial on copics. I've gotta check those out. I'm starting to use them now and need some hints. Your work is beautiful and love the colors.
