DIY: Another quick case: Damask & Florals

March 8, 2012

Hey there!!!! I’m back – can you believe I’ve actually been able to post each day this week!?

Today’s card is another CASE that I made this past weekend. I’ve had this inspiration photo saved on my computer for a really long time and I finally got around to recreating it. The fact that I “saved” it on my computer should let you know how old it is – I didn’t even have Pinterest at the time!
I was initially drawn to the combination of pale blue damask with bold florals. I also really love how the red flowers have a dark, almost black center – it’s so lush.

For my stamped version of this project, I pulled out Papertrey Ink’s Rosie Posie set (if you don’t own this set – you may need to go ahead and place your order – it’s one of my absolute favorites!)

Just like the original, I combined a pale blue background with florals, and used colored pencils to create dark shading at the base of each bloom.
I opted for no bow on this card because it was just too much for me.

I love the result – although I definitely can’t take credit for it!

Thanks for stopping by!
