Simply Bloomin

Got totally lucky... Nah not that ... this Stamp *grin* Melissa decided to part with it and asked me if I was interested... So, this is stamped with Versafine on a piece of Couture card stock's "detail blending paper" (made for copics) not bad, not bad at all... a little thin feeling. but i dumped a lot more ink on this paper then i normally do and you can barely see the bleed through on it so its not a sponge paper at all. :) This was also done for Tamijo's birthday bash challenges so it uses SCS sketch # SC189 & Color Combo # CC257 ( and it's still not perfect) the color combo is supposed to be Chocolate Chip,(check) Dusty Durango (check its the dirty orange ish color) and sage shadow... (beep) who knew there is a green i never bought, lol so the green mat is Mint Melody. (not sure if its a close substitute or not but that's how i rolled with this one) It's 4 1/2 X 6 in real life.
Won this puppy on the 'bay recently... for less then it normally goes for *smirk* stamped with versafine on that blending paper. colored with copics. then trimmed crooked... so this is my thought for the day is that is why the first cards were ever distressed... to hide the boo-boos... (sentiments at an off angle was more worried about cutting rectangle size then watching the image while i whacked the first side) So this ones mats are certainly celery and chocolate chip. the base is Bazzill and its 6" square in real life. this Magnolia was stamped with Memento sand on Neenah classic cream and the boo boo happened right off the bat, got the pressure foot caught a bit on the lump that ribbon made through the layers and so for a bit i was sewing with the foot in the air, so of course the first line of stitches went way off at an angle so zipped around the edges a few more times all over the place to distract from that. Basic Grey PP, unknown brads, the light green mat is certainly celery, the darker is fresh asparagus. the cardbase is Bazzill. and this ones 5 1/2" X 6 in real life.

The colorings are gorgeous. I agree with Meg. The depth of the petals are so life-like.
