Extended Scene Part II

Hello everyone,
Today I am playing along with DRS Designs. I just recently received some of their stamps and am really enjoying them! Their theme is 'Make a Scene' so I decided to take my DRS stamps and get to work..well sort of, I will explain below. Here is my card I hope you like it..

Extended the mosaic feel outside of the colored area.
Sentiment and dragonfly came from another project
and it wasn't usable until now.
Detailed image of the mosaic flowers
My eyes started cross while trying to decipher which was what
but in the end it all worked out beautifully.
Sentiment gives the card a bit of sparkle.
The layout of this card is reminiscent to another one did for House of Cards. If you'd like click here to see the post.

I actually created this flower scene when I first received the stamp but wasn't sure how I was going to use it, until now. Yeah! The dragonfly might look familiar too, it is from a previous post. I added wrong embossing powder and had to redo the sentiment but kept this one for another time. The ribbon was actually bright pink and looked terrible against the coral flowers. So I colored the ribbon with the lightest yellow alcohol marker I had. The color afterward looked much better!

Cause a Scene
How to:
  1. Cut and scored my kraft CS to an A2 sized card.
  2. Stenciled the kraft paper using VersaMark Ink as a watermark
  3. Stamped the flower image on kraft paper in black. Set aside.
Mosaic flower image was completed several weeks ago:
  1. Stamped the mosiac image from DRS Designs and then stamped the flowered image. 
  2. Colored the flowers using different shades of the same color. Repeated with the green background.
  3. Cropped image.
  4. Let the design sit. Staring back at me begging me to use it!! LOL...
Now back to the present:
  1. Adhered the flower mosaic image to the card base using dimensional adhesive. 
  2. Cut a piece of ribbon and colored it using a very light yellow alcohol marker to achieve the correct color.
  3. Wrapped the card and tied the bow.
  4. Added the sentiment with dragonfly.
Okay for real this time it is time for me to go and get my day going.. Thank you for stopping by and please leave a comment if you'd like. Hearing what you have to say is such a joy.. Take care all and see you soon.

All the Best,
