Happy Friday All!!
I’m so happy and honored to be teaming up with Jill Foster during the month of May! Each Friday we will be collaborating on a specific Penny Black stamp set. This week is Tiger Lily! Lilies are my absolute favorite flower, so I was really excited to be working with this stamp. Now, I know it’s supposed to be a Tiger Lily, but why not a Stargazer? Here’s my card for this week:
Rather than using the stamp as a single flower, I created a background out of it. Only one flower showed the bottom of the stem, so I covered it with the sentiment! I used Copic Markers to color the flowers… notice that I added a green center to the petals, since that’s what Stargazers have. It’s kind of hard to notice in the picture, but I used the Stampin’ Up! Chevron embossing folder on the black cardstock and cut some strips for the sides. This stamp is so versatile, you can really make any kind of lily out of it. In fact, I also made an Easter lily out of it, but I’ll save that card for another time. 🙂
Here’s the best part of this collaboration month… Jill and I want to see what YOU create with these stamp sets. Make a card using Tiger Lily, upload it to the Penny Circle Flickr gallery, and tag it with “JillDarlene”. At the end of the month, Jill and I will each pick our favorite cards using each stamp set and feature those cards on our blog June 7th. You have the whole month to create! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Now, head on over to Jill’s blog to see what she has created with Tiger Lily. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m absolutely sure it will be a stunner, as all of her cards are.
Have a wonderful weekend!
