IC173 WSC74 Iris

Boy was I excited when I saw the inspiration challenge for today! A Painter! Since I do a bit of painting myself, this was particularly inspiration for me. I loved so many of her pieces but I selected this one to case. The Weekend Sketch Challenge #74 was a perfect match.

I stamped the iris onto the Basic Grey DP. I colored using Copics. I then drew in some grass with my Copics (use a light, medium, and dark green for depth and start drawing at the bottom and "flick" at the top to get that point) . I added a little soft sponging of Sage and Eggplant to the bottom of the grass line to make it coordinate with the distressing at the top of the DP. The “brads” are faux. I punched ¼” pieces of Eggplant cardstock and then added a little white highlight on the upper right and a little black lowlight on the lower left.

Stamps: Long Stemmed, Sanded, See D’s A Word or Two
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Sage Shadow, Basic Grey DP
Ink: Sage Shadow, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Copics, White Prismacolor pencil, ¼” circle punch, designer label punch, Cricut George Cartridge (for ovals)
