Happy Bloomin' Friday! I was in the mood for something bright and cheery and Cosmo Cricket's Line of "DeLovely" is perfect for that!
My main image is actually stamped in versamark and then heat embossed with clear detail powder. I wanted to be able to color these blooms and not have a black or brown line, rather a white one to match the patterned paper I was using.
The stamp is one large one from Stampendous.....er...it is a flower that starts with a "R". Ranunculous?...I know I am spelling that wrong.
I love the "painted" quality these flowers have that are colored with my copics.
NOTE: only use CLEAR embossing powder when trying this in combination with copics. If you use a colored embossing powder your copics will pull the pigment out of it and smear it all over your image....not the desired effect.
Photography speak.....I bought a new lens for my DSLR. It is called the "nifty fifty" a 50mm fixed point lens that has a 1.8 F-stop. This is great for photographing my cards....nice crisp card, very blurred background. A great little lens for just over $100. Seems to be very nice for low lighting settings too....I hate using my flash.
Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
