HSI # 9 Pansies

Hello Everyone and Happy Monday!

It's that time again, Heart Song Inspirations weekly challenge http://heartsonginspirations.blogspot.com. This weeks challenge is Monochromatic and/or use brads. Heart Song Designs www.heartsongdesignsshop.com has alot of new images to offer which made this challenge for me very difficult. I could not make up my mind what image I was going to use. Make sure you stop by to see what the store has to offer.





My card for this challenge is using Heart Song Designs - Teacup Pansies. I colored my image using my favorite technique )watercoloring) with my Stampin Up Lavender Lace, Perfect Plum, Close to Cocoa and Green Galore ink pads. I also used Copic Markers YR12 and Y19. I chose white for the base of card to make the lavender cardstock stand out. I cut my image out so that it was more defined. I dry embossed the top of my white cardstock with a flower. Then I took my lavender cardstock and crimped it with my crimper and then I edged punched the bottom of the cardstock. Then I mounted my lavender striped designer paper ( company unknown) to that, once that was done I added my yellow flowered brads. Once all this was complete I mounted my lavender cardstock to the base of my card and did the same with my sentiment. To finish off my card I took my cup of pansies and mounted it to the card using pop dots. I really enjoyed this challenge and I hope you all will too. Good luck to you all and hope to see you all next week.

Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!!

Great watercoloring, Debbie! Love that border punch you used -- it really goes with all the flowers, too. BTW, it takes forever for your word verification thingy to show up that I've had to repost comments several times because I've already clicked off your site and on to the next one. Then, I click to get back. LOL
