Lenten Rose Graphic

Today begins the Flourishes sneak peek for March. Our first set is Lenten Rose. I selected one of the lovely images from this set and a sentiment to make this simple card.

I cased this card by Paula Willamson here. I absolutely loved the simplicity and all the white space! I actually have that same butterfly stamp too, so I could really CASE it, lol!

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored it with Copic markers. I stamped it so that part of it would extend past the end of the panel. I then used a Copic Multi-liner pen and drew in the lines around the panel free hand. I shaded around the image with Prismacolor pencils and oms and also added Flower Soft to the flower centers. Lastly I popped the finished panel up on a white card base.

The Flourishes design team has wonderful creations to share with us today so make sure you check them all out!

    Gorgeous, Danielle! I really love how clean and crisp this is. It just took my breath away when I first saw it. Love your style. Never too much. I might have mentioned that before. Your link did not take me to Paula's card (sob). I love her work. ps: Rosie is so CUTE! I know, I know...I can't get over her!
