Paper Cupcake – Follow the recipe

floralboatajh

This week at Paper Cupcake we were given a recipe by Nilla to follow for our card:

1 ribbon
2 embellishments (rhinestones, pearls, brads...)
3 DPs
4 flowers


Whew! I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off considering I was working with a boat image! But I pulled out some DP from DCWV The Cafe Mediterranean matstack and away I created.  I colored my white ribbon with my orange copic to match the boat and paper. Pulled out some orange felt flowers (hope I don’t get points off for “hiding” my flowers some under my image) and some orange gemstones. Colored the image with copics and prismacolor pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits.

Amber, I love the fun bright colors for this image! I especially love the orange and love that flowers were part of this as well, not sure too many people would attempt to add flowrs to this pic, but I think is worked out wonderfully delightful!
