Here is the card that I created for this challenge:
To create this card, I created a plain white invitation size folded card. I stamped onto a scrap of white card stock the floral hello image, a new stamp from Mama Elephant, I used a light grey color ink from Memento. Then, using the color graphic as a guide, I selected Copic Markers that matched and colored the stamped image. I attempted to add shadows but I need a lot more practice! :)
I fussy cut the hello flower image. I trimmed a small piece of My Favorite Things colored paper, placed a stitched rectangle die on three sides, then glued it to the card front. Then, I placed the floral hello on top using foam tape. I trimmed a small strip of white card stock and added it to the bottom of the card. I took a stamp that says "Beautiful" from an older Technique Tuesday set dated 2012, named Pretty Petals. I stamped that word onto the white card stock strip, and onto the adjoining paper using the same grey ink. I then added a small strip of the colored paper on top the white strip, and added to small grey accents. I tied some American Crafts twine onto the card, and made a bow, then added a gem.
