Hope Happens

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week. I'm here to share another card that I made recently.

I'm using one of the freebies that Joanna had sent in one of the newsletters, few weeks back. It's no secret that I love to color flower images. And this one is no exception. Since I have not seen many irises in real life, I did a google search to get some pics of the flowers.

I printed the Iris card front in the size I wanted, with a oval border around it, so that I cut it with my Xacto knife. I started by coloring the leaves and stem of the flowers. I used Copic markers G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03, my usual color combination for leaves.

I saw that many irises have yellow color in the lower middle part of the petals. I used Y38 and Y35 for those areas. For the remaining part of the petals and the buds, I used R37, R35, R22 and R32.

Then I cut out the oval border with my X-acto knife. I cut a oval from white cardstock to add a mat to the oval panel with the image and colored the edges with R35. I took a piece of white cardstock and used Stampendous Small Damask stencil to add texture paste on it.

Once dry, I adhered it on to coral colored A2 card base. I adhered the matted oval on to it. That's a pretty simple card.
