Autumn Mums

I love Chrysanthemums.  I was very  happy to create with this image from Designed2Delight Digital Stamps.  The image is called Autumn Mums... isn't it lovely!

Ingredients: cardstock, Paper - Portacraft; Promarkers; Glitter Pens, Glaze Pens - Sakura; Chalks - Pebbles Inc;  Rhinestones - Kaisercraft...
I created a card with a brown palette, and thought that it might also be appropriate for a gent. I loved the spots of the vase, so kept it bold with bands of brown behind the image layer. I coloured the flowers with stardust pens, the vase with promarkers and a water pen, and added glaze pen over the spots. I chalked browns and yellow around the image to fill the whitespace.  Oh, and also a metallic copper pen to the vase trim, at the top.  I used only one matt for the image, and it's a dark metallic brown.  The cardbase is a copper metallic, while the other papers used a re flat matte.  Unfortunately, the metallic and glitterati doesn't really show in this picture.... Rhinestones were finally added to the image corners.
Thanks for peepin'!
