Emma’s Birthday Bash Blog Hop!

What up folks?! I am the last stop on today’s hop, so I hope you got here from the the wonderful Veronica’s blog. If not, start at Emma’s blog: here.

Today is Emma’s birthday and I am doing a guest spot with my former teamies to celebrate! I’m happy I had some extra time this week to cook something up. And, because I adore Emma, I broke out the Copic markers!

I want to first start off by apologizing for the horrible photos. I had to photograph at night because of my work schedule, and I really need to get a new camera. Mine doesn’t like me anymore. Anyway, when it stops raining, I will do my best to get some better photos. These kind of depress me a bit.

I used two of Emma’s older sets, Bloom Where You Are Planted & Floral Sentiments on my card. Floral Sentiments is one of my all time favorite MCT sets.

My card is pretty straightforward. I stamped the sunflower bouquets with some Momento Rich Cocoa ink. I started off with Tuxedo Black, but it was totally harsh and made me sick to my stomach, so I decided to 86 it and start over. I used two Copic markers, YR65 Atoll & Y35 Maize, to color my flowers. The brown markers are Prismacolors. I stamped my sentiment with Versamark Dazzle in Champagne then embossed it with some detail gold embossing powder. I mixed some gold Perfect Pearls with water and did a little misting on the card front to give it a little more shimmer. Plus, I love the big droplets that misting adds. Me thinks it’s a bit textural.

Alrighty, I am going to call it a night. This boy has to work ALL day tomorrow so I need to get some Z’s. Thank you so much for stopping by! I wish everyone a great day and a blessed weekend. Also, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the moms!!
