Featuring Jeanne with Meadow Silhouettes

The Featured Stamper this week at SCS is Jeanne (aka akeptlife).  It didn't take long to find a card from her fabulous gallery to CASE.  I chose this card for the bright, pretty flowers. I remembered this image that I'd started to color as a demonstration during a class and threw in my UFO box after. Jeanne's card was just the inspiration I needed to get it out and finish it.


The background of this is stamped with VersaMark and embossed with white.  The flowers are not embossed and I nearly went blind colored them with markers.  It's much easier to do this technique when it's embossed in black.  Like I did here.



All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Two lovely cards but the second is stunning...Wow!!!

Ooh, both are so beautiful. I hear you on the white background one...I tried this first time - using copics over white embossing. Only did it once! Damaged some nibs. Next time, I used pencils & Memento Markers (which didn't like the emboss texture too much either). Never tried on black. Gorgeous ...both cards. TFS & stay cool

Haha! Glad you didn't go blind, my friend! I love them both! I don't remember seeing the black embossed version before and I have to say it is very striking!!

Susan said...

I love both versions - so glad you were able to finish the white one even though it was hard to see what you were doing! The black one is incredibly striking!
