BIC21 Bloom and CC182 Happy Birthday

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

I'm always looking forward to this day, because of the BIC and the CC.

Today's CC182 - is to create a *Monochromatic* card. I already had an image that I've colored with a light purple *Watercolor Pencil* and blended it with the Delta Blending and Shading Solution for the WT181.

The main image is from *Innovative Stamp Creations* Beautiful Flower Set and the only thing I have added was the Dazzling Diamond Glitter.

Next I have stamped the sentiment from the *It's Your Birthday* Set with Orchid Opulence and added the beautiful purple 5/8" Ribbon from PTI. Voila!!!

*********************************************



Next I've created a card for the BIC#21.

Beate has chosen this beautiful Console Table from *Pottery Barn*.
I really like the colors and ran with that idea.
I've used Whisper White, So Saffron, Basic Black Wild Wasabi and Tangerine Tango.

I wish I would have had a *tulip* stamp....but I've settled for the *Blooming Beautiful* Set - I really love this Set.

For the layout I used Jen del Muro's Sketch.

My card measures 5" x 5". I started out with Whisper White and layered it according to the Sketch. The DP is from the Tangerine Tango Prints Pack. I matted the panels with Basic Black. The top panel was cut out with a circle Nestabilitie and embossed with the *Dotted* CB folder. Plus I have raised them with Stampin Dimensionals.

The main image was colored with some Prisma Markers and Copic Markers. Of course I had to add some mini Pearls to make the flowers look pretty....The sentiment was inked in Basic Black and I've pierced right below it. Hope you like it???
Please stop by the rest of Beate's Team and see every ones take on the BIC.....
Hope we have inspired you to play along?!? ~TFL~

Silke, you're killing me with the monochromatic card. It's beautiful, but PURPLE? Really? LOL
your challenge card is perfect. I love the dry embossed frame, the paper and colors you chose.
Have a wonderful day! Hugs and grins

Silke, these are gorgeous. I love the pearls on the flowers - it makes me want to get that set now! I have a question for you - you said you used prisma and copic markers to color it in, do you have to heat dry the basic black ink before coloring in? I find that Basic Black always smears when color with either brand of marker. I'm just wondering what you do. Thanks!

Oh wow, Silke, breathtaking purple card (I love, love, love it!) and the card for Beate's challenge is so pretty! Love your stamp choice and that fun layout!

Laura said...

Thanks for the info on the Basic Black. Patience is a virtue, guess I need to wait for the ink to dry a little more. I just finished ordering my Bloomin' Beautiful set. Now I'm broke :)
