Here is the card I created using the set Regal & Proud.
I inked the tree stamp with markers using the lightest color of green first and then tapping on two other shades of green before stamping I then used Copic markers to fill in a bit. I used the same technique on the trunk of the tree and the flowers at the base. I added a little red to the flowers with an At You Spica pen. I then inked up the tree two more times using the same technique and stamped the shrubs. I then stamped the soaring eagle. Next I airbrushed the sky and the grass with Copic markers before cutting/embossing with Spellbinders oval die. I then mounted that onto an Always Artichoke Big Scalloped Oval. That is popped up with dimensionals onto the dp card front. The sentiment from thee set is stamped with Chocolate pigment ink and clear embossed before punching out and framing with the hardware. I also added the artichoke organdy ribbon and heated it just a little bit to get the bow to lay the way I wanted it.
Be sure to visit all the blogs and then go to Mark's Finest Papers and let them know you went to all the blogs so you can have a chance to win!
