Yesterday I had a bright yellow and orange PTI gladiolus as a thank you card for a special blog hop, today I'm showing that same image used in a sympathy card. Yesterday I used copics for a really bright look, today I wanted soft tones so I shaded this in using my SU chalks.
I think if I did this type of layout next time I would straighten out the sentiment. It is lined up with the image, but then when I decided on the layout after stamping and coloring, I liked the gladiolus tipped to the side, but would have preferred a straight sentiment . . .I wasn't going to redo it after all the coloring though!
This is a large image so the card is longer than an A2 . . . anyone know where you get middle of the road envelopes? Shorter than business size, longer than A2.
Stickles in the center of the gladiolus, sentiment from Clear Dollar Stamps, border on the bottom PTI Botanicals. Thanks for looking!
