Spring into April ....#2

This time I used the set 'Forever Friends' from the Spring into April TAC promotion sets. I still am working with the Lilly Anna Paper Collection, the black and white ribbon collection, water color crayons and my Niji water brush. I added double diagonal score lines using my Scor-Pal for the background of this card and then added 1/2" strips of the Lilly Anna paper for added detail. YOU HAVE TO CLICK ON THIS CARD to see the detailed scoring lines. I have two different types of scoring in one card. I love the look I used the circle punch and it's complimentary scalloped punch for the roses. On the scallop punch I highlighted the scallops with TAC's Tombow white gel pen. On the the vase I used two different colors of blue crayons, first a lighter color all over and then highlighted with a darker shade of the same color. For the roses, I colored them first with light pink, highlighted with a darker pink, purple and a little yellow. I used my Tombow grey marker to add a base for the vase and to outline the image to give it depth. I stamped the words in Noir at an angel along one of the score lines.

For the second card I used the tulip image and colored in a similar fashion but I first used the negative of the largest scalloped circle punch for a template to stipple a background to stamp the image into. I used a stipple brush and yellow and Coquack inks for the stippling. I added score lines and green paper, words in Noir ink, a yellow bow and a corner punch for detail.

Today I will be grocery shopping and cooking for my guests. Then I will meet them at Hollo's for a day of shopping before we come home. It will be fun. Have a great day yourself!! Blessings
