This is my card for Bonnie (bon2stamp), this week's Featured Stamper. Bonnie has so many great cards in her gallery, when I saw she was the FS, I just knew I had to find time to play along.
I selected this stunning birthday card to CASE. I chose to stick with Bonnie's color choices, floral focal image and layout. I changed the choice of flowers and the occasion, added a black mat behind my focal image and, since I am extremely bow challenged, I skipped her pretty bow/ribbon element.
I stamped my image with Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I then cropped the image and used clear Versamark with clear detail EP to cover the entire image. (Did 2 coats). Attached to my white base and stamped my sentiment.
Congratulations, Bonnie! I hope you've enjoyed your week in the spotlight!

Wow Debbie...absolutely Stunning!!! I LOVE the black behind the beautifully colored flowers with the black frame against the wider White frame. Really makes your main image pop. I Think the perfect font for your sentiment and card too. Did not need ribbon my friend. TFS

I'm so sorry that you needed a sympathy card and also, I'm sorry that I will need to CASE this! It never occurred to me to stamp in black! The versamark and clear ep is too good to be true! This is stunning, Debbie!

OH, Debbie, I'm so glad you got to your stamp room! What a beautiful creation. I'm going to have to try this technique! No ribbon needed. Thanks so much for honoring me. It's been a truly wonderful week!
