Black-eyed Susan

Hello Everyone!  It's Power Poppy Friday and today I'm using the brand new digi called Black-eyed Susan!  If you pop by the Power Poppy Blog you'll see there's a special on digi stamps - including this one!!!  It's one of five digital stamp sets that are on the Fab 5 Sale all weekend long!  Check out out:

Don't miss it!!  I've tried something a little different and added a bit of shimmer paint around the Black-eyed Susans that have been coloured with Copics.  In real life the effect is a pretty shimmer, but I'm not sure I like it or not.  Perhaps I'm just used to using only Copics and not comfortable with the washy background.  Maybe it will grown on me!

I've used a base of cream and layered with Chocolate Chip and So Saffron cut with Valiant Honor.  This is topped with more Chocolate Chip.  On top of this is X-press It Blending Card which I printed the Black-eyed Susan and sentiment onto.  I've coloured the flowers with Copics and then splashed the shimmer paint around it.  I've then wrapped some ribbon around it and added a bow and a couple of rhinestones.

Oh Kathy, I LOVE that beautiful background you've created!!! It gives the whole design a painterly feel. That gold frame accents it perfectly, and your coloring is gorgeous as always, my friend!

Totally gorgeous! You all are doing amazing things with this digi set and I'm getting so inspired! Your shimmery painted background is so cool with this, plus the golden frame. You've created a whole other look and I love it!

Oh Kathy... your back ground is to die for! I love it it reminds me of marble! Super fabulous card - love your bright bold blooms!

Kathy, this is BEAUTIFUL, and I love how you've added a marble effect...I think Ally is right that it reminds me of a beautiful marble. And it must be more beautiful IRL with the shimmer! It's stunning, and you have also made a gorgeous card for it with the beautiful frame with the black and gold. Truly another fabulous card, and now you've got me thinking about this - since I've been considering how to add some kind of background other than Copics. Thanks for the inspiration, my friend! Hugs!
