Praying for You

Good morning. I am double dipping on challenges with today's project. I received the new Verve Floral Notes set and matching dies this week and thought it was perfect for the current Tag You're It Challenge #25 and then when I saw the new Viva la Verve Sketch Challenge on Friday morning it was kismet!

I was inspired by the floral image in the TYIC inspiration piece so I stamped the largest poppy image from the Floral Notes set onto Copics X-Press It cardstock and then cut it out with the matching die from the Floral Notes Die Set. After coloring with Copic Markers I added some Liquid Pearl centers and then attached to a tag cut from white cardstock and patterned paper using foam tape with a swirl of black hemp cord underneath. I cut another tag from red patterned paper attaching the two tags together with a snippet of ribbon and hemp cord. The sentiment was stamped onto a banner piece. I combined patterned paper from four different paper pads cutting the circle and rectangle with Lil Inker Designs stitched dies.

Products: Verve stamps and dies, Lily Bee, Crate Paper, Simple Stories and Pink Paislee dp, PTI cs, May Arts ribbon, Hemptique cord, Ranger Liquid Pearls, Reverse Confetti dies, Lil Inker Designs dies, Copic Markers
