Pansies are one of my favorite flowers with their sweet little 'faces' and beautiful colors - every spring they are one of the first flowers I plant in my garden.
I made this card to help Karen Barber illustrate her color challenge over at Split Coast this week. She chose Pear Pizzazz, Concord Crush and Bashful Blue for us to use, a lovely combination don't you think? Her dessert option was to use a white gel pen on our creation.
For my card, I first dry embossed a deckled oval Nestability in the center of the card. I used copics in colors similar to the three challenge colors for my cluster of pansies. I cut out the image and adhered it inside the frame with foam tape. Finally, I added yellow stickles to the center of my pansies and some dots with a white gel pen.
My pretty pansie stamp is from Rubbernecker

This week the Split Coast teaparty honored Roxie our long suffering SCS Sketch Challenge hostess! We all headed off to the Roxbury for a wild night of dancing! I'm bringing a rather sedate victorian couple to add a little class to the evening (if that's at all possible!! LOL!!!) but boy can they 'cut a rug' - look at those pointed toes and uplifted elbows!
There is absolutley no stamping on my card today (gasp) just a focus on the dance and the sketch (which is last week's SCS sketch)
This lovely image came from Dover Publications who publishes copyright free images on disk that you can download, resize and print to your heart's content!
I added some ice stickles to the ladies hair ribbon, shoulder and edge of her dress and a little to the man's waistcoat for some shimmer.
Hope you can stop by on Sunday - all of the Rubbernecker DT will be previewing some brand new stamps being released on Tuesday 3/15. There will be a chance to win free Rubbernecker stamps - whoo hoo!! and check out the newly refurbished Rubbernecker Blog!
