Guest Designer Today! Delicate Florals

Today is the day! I'm terrified and excited at the same time...I am the Guest Designer over at The Angel Company's Savvy Projects Blog. Here is a short version of my post...




This first card features chalks. I love white cards - they really make the main image shine. But, I also love texture and I was able to add those little touches through the cardboard and Impressionabilities background.





Next I used Copics on my Delicate Florals. I bought this set for these narrow sprigs - you can see my first project in my sidebar for some really cool watercolored gift tags. Copics are bright and vivid - I love them! But, in this case, I wanted to soften up the look a bit and layered them with vellum. This double sided Emma paper from The Angel Company is a MUST HAVE.





This was the very first card I made with my Delicate Florals set. I love to watercolor with Tombow markers and the key here is to use 2-3 shades of each color to get a more intense color. I learned to drag a Versamark pad over dry embossing from Mischelle and it's great how it really makes the background pop.





My last card is a bookmark card! It's an oldie but goodie I think...the perfect note to send a friend. I used Prismacolor pencils on both sets of flowers and then fussy cut them out...the details to make this card are over on the Savvy Projects Blog.




Well, that wraps it up. Thank you so much for visiting me today! Thank you to Mischelle for giving me the chance to be a Guest Designer today...what an honor!
