almost naked

Hi everybody. I was busy stamping this weekend. Over on splitcoast it was VSN (virtual stamp night), although over time it has grown into a weekend rather than just one night. It's a ton of fun and is fast paced. There were a total of 19 challenges. I managed to get 10 of them done. If I was more motivated, there is still time to get one or two more done before the upload deadline of 11 pm Eastern time. But, I'm satisfied with what I did accomplish. I actually did one more card this weekend for Saturday's inspiration challenge. That's the one I'm going to show you tonight. The inspiration photos showed some bedding, which I really wasn't crazy about, so I took my inspiration from a flower on top of the headboard. Since the wall behind it was bare, I decided to leave my card free of any background or extra layers of card stock.

The vase and flower are made with paper tole. The image was colored with markers and I added a line at the base of the vase, so it didn't seem to be floating. The hardest part of this card was cutting out the tiny flower and leaf.

stamps: vases in vogue (SU)
ink: jet black stazon, real red, glorious green, & yoyo yellow markers
paper: whisper white
other: mounting tape

I'm so glad you stopped by. I hope you have a great week.
