Hope you all are enjoying your weekend. I made three cards using Fred she said African Violet images.
She has some beautiful images, and the beauty is that you can buy them recolored or black and white. I used only the black and white as i like to color my own.
The background was done with distress oxides and then some splatters of water. I colored the image with zig color pens, let it dry, fussy cut and raised it on the card. Added sequins. This was a quick and easy card. The sentiment is from MFT stamps and added twine to finish the card. Popped the panel on a card base.
The second card uses the same images but I used the single flower instead.
I took a sheet of paper, first added the leaves and clear embossed it. Then added distress oxides over it. I cut the sheet diagonally so I made two cards out of it. I aligned where i wanted the flowers to go and added little leaves and colored them with comic markers. The leaves are from Hero Arts stamp. The flowers were colored with Zig pens and then for two of them i added glossy accents. Once all dry I added them to the card. The diagonal pice was popped up and then the flowers were added. Added a sentiment on the top corner and added some sequins.
The third card uses the other part of the diagonal sheet. Used Fred she said African Violets again.
A similar layout as the first one, just alternated the side. Colored the flowers with zig clean color pens and added glossy accents to one of the flower.
Thank you for visiting and have a great day.
