You Are Strong

 Today I would like to share another hand drawn image from my friend Jo Ann Stapleton. I made this card of encouragement using her Daffodil image.

I started by sizing the flower to fit the front of an A2 sized card and then printed it on Neenah 110# card stock.  I used my Copic markers for coloring and the Gina Marie Designs Labels #3 nesting die for the edge and the coordinating patterned mat. 

I slipped the colored image into my Misti and  stamped the sentiment with VersaFine black ink on top right corner of the colored image.  

Next, I mounted the mat and image on a Kraft card base.  By adding the shade of brown at the back, this makes the dark brown deep in the flower more visible ~ gives it that 'pop'.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
