Flower Collage Blog Hop

Hi all! I'm participating in a Angel Blog Hop featuring the stamp set "Flower Collage". I have two cards to show you using this set - one is new and the other you have seen before.

This card is actually a note card, measuring 4.75 x 3.75.

The image is done with two coloring mediums - Copic Ciao markers and Chalk. The flowers and leaves are done with with the Copic's. The 1900 medallion and the back ground are colored with Chalks. I also added a bit of clear glaze gel pen to the Zinnia to give it a shine.

Nestabilities were used to cut out the images and the peach layer. In real life the peach matches the color of the Zinnia flower really close. Anyway, I added this to a blue layer, stamped the sentiment and then started to embellish. On the two lower corners of the card I added some paper piercing. I also tied a bit of ribbon to the left hand corner and then added some self adhesive pearls.

Stamps - Flower Collage and the sentiment is from rejoicing with you, all TAC
Paper - White card stock, blue and peach cs from DCWV
Ink - Palette Noir
Copic Ciao Markers in G07, YG63, R32, RV31, Y06
Self adhesive pearls from K&Company
White Grosgrain ribbon

Here is the other card - which you saw as a sketch card previously.

The main panel is colored with prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS. I also daubered on some sky blue chalk ink from colorbox in the background. The same is done with the two back panels so that they matched. The script on all of the panels is very close, but is actually two different stamps.
The flowers are from OTC (Oriental Trading Company) that I purchased years ago. I hardly ever use flowers on my cards - so I have bunches of them sitting around.
Have a great week!
