Michael Strong Stamps- Day 1

Waving hello!  I hope you did not gain any weight over the Thanksgiving weekend : )

 Anyway, I belong to a Yahoo Group for creative folks that like to use Michael Strong Stamps. In this group, we volunteer to post daily cards for inspiration : )  Each day of the week we volunteer, and Thursday is a tutorial project.

  I used a lilly stamp on the background, and the large lilly image was stamped, embossed with white EP and colored with Copic markers. I love the tone on tone colors and the softness of this card.

Challenges:
Amusing Challenge- AG
Addicted to CAS- Dimension
Brown Sugar- pearls

Thanks for stopping by!

A very pretty image, colored beautifully (the flower looked like it was done on vellum?). The embossed mesh of the border created lots of texture against the soothing background, and it's a perfect card to be used for a sympathy card. TFS & Hugs
