Just a note | Clearly Besottted

I've been wanting to ink up the Clearly Besotted - Pick A  Peony set.  It's a beauty!

I'm still smitten with black + white panels so I used my Mini MISTI and inked up one of the floral images with Versafine Onyx on a Neenah Solar White 110 panel.  I tried to ink the images fairly close together.  I used a Hero Arts Nesting Circle die for the center.  

I used a Bristol panel and inked it up with

Ripe Persimmon  |  Abandoned Coral  |  Scattered Straw

I finished it off with water drops.  The base panel is Stampin' Up Calypso Coral.

The blooms have been colored with:

R21 | R22
Y15 | Y19
G00 | G12

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted's Simply Said set.  

This card is going to a dear friend that recently lost her Mother, see THIS post.  I just noticed on FB yesterday that her husband's birthday is today so you'll be seeing a masculine birthday card soon.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. oh that is a beauty - a perfectly sized bouquet, amy. I never stop learning from you - never even heard of ripe persimmon DOX!!

  3. A very beautifully coloured card & great sentiment, your friend is lucky to have a friend as talented & caring x

  4. Hugs to you Amy. Like the symbolism u r using on this card: life May contain a little color in spots here and there, when you r grieving (such as having supporting friends, loving family, work that u can delve into).

  5. So very pretty Amy! Love the background you made.
