Dream of Iris


Hello! If you are here for the Oldie But Goody Blog Hop, please scroll down to the next post.

I am seriously in love with Graphic 45 papers right now. I am supposed to be on a paper buying hiatus right now, but a week or so ago I was in my LSS and as soon as I walked in the door the new papers just started calling my name. It was hard, but I did manage to walk outof the store with just a few sheets. But I mean look, it's just beautiful and since I used it right away it didn't get added to the paper pile so I think that it doesn't count against my no paper resolution. Oh, how I can justify a craft purchase! I have been playing around with some colors I don't use a lot of and thought I would use a peach/orange combo. the image is Ching Chou Kuik's Dream of Iris from Sweet Pea Stamps. I love the way this card turned out too.

Copic colors used:  Skin - R0000, R000, R01, R02,   Hair - E50, E51. E5, E55, E57,   Leaves - G21, G24, G28,   Flowers - R01, R05, R08,   Accents in the Hair - R05 and Orange Spica Pen.

Gina, sorry so late coming by to reply to this. This is one of my favorite cards you have created, it is my favorite Sweet Pea Card. The colors match perfect with the Graphic 45 paper and that ribbon is gorgeous. Great coloring on this.

This is a stunner Gina - the paper is beautiful too - the image is adorable! If only I had a LSS in my area - we have none - not even in Reno - but hey I'm not adverse to buying online and my work space proves it! Always a reason to buy more! Gorgeous card!

Made me laugh to read about your "justification"! Too funny. . .I do the exact same thing. You are right about the paper though, I wouldn't have resisted either. Looks perfect with the image and ribbon! Best, Curt
