SSS Splendor Fine Floral Stem and Neatly Knitted

Today I'm sharing a Spring card featuring a couple of the new products from the Splendor release.

I started by using the Neatly Knitted embossing folder on a piece of green cardstock.  I really love the knit design and to make it stand out just a bit more, I very lightly inked the raised portions with white pigment ink using a blending brush.

Next up, the Fine Floral Stem die.  This was die cut from Glossy White cardstock.  One pass through creates the base piece as well as three flower accent pieces (which could be adhered directly over the die cut flowers or offset to create a fuller flower - which is what I did) and flower centers.

The die was colored using Copics.  This is the first time I've colored with Copics on glossy cardstock.  The ink dries very quickly, so you really have to work hard at the blending.

I used YG25, G24, and G28 for the stem/leaves, Y00 and Y11 for the petals, and Y08 and Y19 for the flower centers.

I thought about adding some embellishments, but decided to go with a more clean and simple look, so I just added a simple sentiment from my Plant Sentiments set to finish things off.

Thanks for visiting!  It's starting to get pretty warm here.  I'm thinking that Groundhog might have gotten it right this year!
