Case-ing Judy!

When I saw this week's Featured Stamper over on Splitcoast was Judy AKA Jaydekay, I knew I had to play along! I've admired her work for some time now! She is so talented with coloring and I always love the creativity in her layouts! So, THIS is the card that I decided to case!

Just like Judy, I grabbed my Flourishes I Love Roses set!
To change it up for the challenge, I tweaked the layout a bit to use what I had on hand. I used polka dot paper instead of using the polka dot embossing folder. I used an oval instead of a circle for my sentiment and I changed up the stamped background to patterned paper! I also did something a bit different when I colored the rose. I colored the entire base of the rose with a R29 Copic marker and then highlighted and shaded using Poppy Red, Hot Pink, Pink, and Scarlet Lake Prismacolor Pencils. I love the way it turned out! The leaves were done with 2 shades of Koh-i-noor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits.

Well, off to catch up on my day!! Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget tomorrow begins the sneak peeks for Flourishes January release! :-)
