Special To Me

Can you see the blue flowers on the patterned paper, in a tone-on-tone effect?  They almost look like dandelions, but they are Agapanthus Long by Stampendous.  Some time ago, I had a card published in Paper Crafts Magazine using a Stampendous sentiment.  They graciously offered an incentive for that, and I chose the Agapanthus stamp plus another as-yet-uninked goody.


You can see the flowers better in the photo below.  They're nice and subtle, allowing the sentiment (Hero Arts) to shine.  See the little Liquid Pearl I used for the "i"?


I'm happy to have used up some more patterned paper, plus some Groovy Guava cardstock.  It was never a color I totally warmed up to, but I like it in this combo here.

Hope you have a beautiful day!

GG was one that I actually liked, but used it more as accent then the card base, but I love it here especially with this combo. I find that most of my bases these days are kraft, cream, or white. I really need to pull more colors! :-) I love this card! Brilliantly done!

I've always loved that gorgeous
Agapanthus stamp, and it looks extra beautiful blue on blue and with the orange and natural twine. You couldn't have made it better. This card has tons of appeal.

So very happy and cheery! Great use of the patterned paper. I had to go look up that lovely Agapanthus stamp--it's beautiful! I need something long and floral like that . . .
