Tea Roses

When it comes to card making I have a habit of starting starting something, but then moving on to another project before the first is finished.  Consequently I have several stamped and digital images, both colored and awaiting color, a few card layouts awaiting an image, and a basket full of card parts.  Tsk, tsk.  I’m trying to break that habit and finish a few of these projects.  Not to say I won’t start something new in the meantime, but hopefully I’ll finish it, as well.  Today I’m sharing one of a few cards I finished over the weekend.

TeacupMay2012

This is a digital stamp from Squigglefly called Tea Roses.  It’s printed on Flourishes Classic White cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I hope you enjoy it!

  8. My goodness. At first look I thought it was a photograph! I love the way you arranged the elements. It all works wonderfully. I have a whole cupboard of beautiful cups and no one wants them any more - truly a different time.

    I had to look twice. Like some of the others, I thought I saw a photo. Then I realized, it's better than that - it's a Leslie card with your sensational colouring and design. Nobody does this better. So happy you have time for cards, now and then. They always blow me away.

  15. Wow this is gorgeous! Love the colors you used, and that Tea Roses image is wonderful. I went to the website and looked at the other images by that artist, and I did recognize a Bunny Basket image that I think you used before. I have yet to try a digi image, so thanks for the inspiration. To me, your lament about starting so many projects compared with completing them sounds like you are merely enjoying your freedom. Sometimes, we tend to "should" ourselves too much. Of course, there's my habit/addiction of ogling what others create as opposed to even starting something! Linda

  20. OH. WOW!!! This teacup is popping right off the card!! Absolutely beautiful!! And I have no doubt there's a fragrance to those roses! How can there NOT be! (y'know...there's not enough exclamation marks to describe this?!?)

    Curious on the black background. DP?

  24. You just keep making those card parts. This is gorgeous. I used to visit your old blog and I didn't think you could get any better. I think the Garden and
    Goldens have enhanced your talents.

  25. Oh my your coloring of this image is just outstanding, it looks like a picture, just gorgeous!! I do that with other crafts but I usually make a card one at a time, and here lately it is all I can do to keep up with the ones I am trying to get to people on time
