Dogwoods in Bloom

Hi all! It's DT Thursday over on the Impression Obsession blog and I'm sharing a creation that is an oldie but goodie! It's one I made forever ago and never blogged. What was I thinking?

On to my creation....

I just love this trio of dogwood flowers called ---Dogwood 3 -- and I decided to make the flowers just a soft splash of color. After stamping, I did use the "Out of the Box" technique where you cut out portions of your image that would otherwise be cut off by the die and you pop those portions of the image above the die so that they are kept intact. (I hope that makes sense!). After cutting out my image, I colored the blooms up with Copic Markers. I used YG03, YG05, YG00, RV34, RV32, RV02, RV00, YG63, YG61 and R0000.

Here's a close up....

As you can see, I did stamp the flowers a second time on ivory card stock, cut it out and raised it up on my card. After that, it's just matting it all up! I added some light brown decorative card stock that I scored and sanded along the embossed lines. Add some ribbon and bling and... ta da! All done!

Thanks so much for joining me today! I'll be back tomorrow with some more fun from my stamp room, so be sure to stop by!
