Friendship Blooms | Art Impressions

Happy Monday my friends!  Today I have a sweet card for that special friend using Art Impressions beautiful Poppy Border set.  This is in their Bible Journaling line, but as you can see, it's perfect for so many occasions!  This card is for you all!  I have some news to share so keep reading until the end!

I die cut some Neenah Solar White 80# card stock with the next to largest Rectangle Double Stitched die.  Then I began as usual, stamping in Copic safe ink and coloring with my markers listed below.  I've been working on coloring with different color families and hey, these are my poppies and I colored them in yellow and a coral shade.  Isn't that the best thing about beautiful floral stamps like this?!!  I decided to try something new--instead of adding a typical shadow around the image, I used the yellow markers and added tiny dots.  What do you think?  

I chose a sentiment from the WC Sentiment Set-4903 and stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I layered it onto a coordinating colored card stock from my stash and popped it up on foam tape to my card base.  I added a few Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Crystal Drops for a bit of bling.

So, if you've read this far, thank you!  I have felt so very honored and blessed to be on Art Impressions amazing design team and the ladies on this team are just the absolute BEST!  I made my first Ai post on June 4, 2018 and have felt so welcomed and supported by my teammates for these two years.  I've decided to step down from the team for now, as I've just felt the need to have more free time to work on other things--one of those being improving my watercoloring--including the Ai way!  I'm SO thankful for YOU, and your kindness!  Sending many crafty hugs to you all!
