From the Past

I am not being nostalgic today.  I simply wanted something to denote a new category of cards that I am sharing….from the past.  Today I had great fun with a friend and local stamper, Karen stopped by for us to have some play time.  We ended up playing around with different mediums with the same image and some techniques on coloring and shading.  I pulled out some card “from the past” that I had done using different mediums and I came across this one and thought that I would share it with you today.  It is one of my favorites.  I have to admit that this was from our pre Flourishes days so this stamp is from Stampendous and I still love it today.  The stamp has  poppy stems, so this card was made by stamping and masking using Eclipse tape until I came up with this pleasing arrangement.  Tomorrow I will take more time and prepare the actual process of actually how this card was made.  so without further to do here is the card

From The Atelier today–well yesterday !




So How did you do that you ask…

It’s  one colorful card….all done on a piece of white card stock, colored with Prisma colored pencils, the background colored in black.  Then it was cut out and place on a green cardstock stamped with the linen backgound by SU.  A piece of DP on the bottom m favorite green ribbon and black and white polka dot sheer ribbon simply tied with a not and underscored with a hint of  Poppy red card stock on the bottom and all set on a black card base.

Don’t forget that tomorrow I will show you just how I did the card so I hope you will stop back by to visit.

By the way, Julie Koerber at Out To Impress used the very same stamp from Stampeddous today so you may want to visit her’s as well.

I hope you enjoyed this ” From the Past”.

Ciao from the Atelier today….
