I have been creating with my Cornish Heritage Farms images all week and had to share this one with you. It's a slight diversion from what I have been posting, because this is clearly a "girly" card. I went for the Rice Paper backgrounder again - and it was a perfect pairing with the simple image. I love the texture this backgrounder gives to a card.
See... it's a girly card, isn't it? Purple isn't my usual go-to color either, but it's hard not to pair the irises with anything other than a blue-purple color, in my opinion. I'm sure there are other colors of irises... this is just the color my grandmother's irises were.
I've included a close-up of the central image. I colored with copic markers and highlighted with a white gel pen. I love how vibrant they colored. I'm completely in love with my small stash of copics. Now to expand... just don't mention it to my husband.
I may rip this card apart and try again though. The ribbon seems out of place to me. Anyone have an opinion? If I recreate this one, I'll repost it.
Thanks for stopping by,
