A new challenge begins today at Words 2 Craft By and it is my privilege to be a guest this week.  The quote for this month's challenge is:
"Liberty when it begins to take root,  is a plant of rapid growth."  George Washington
This is my interpretation:

For the main panel I used a digital print offered by Crafting With Jack.  It is pictured below.
I love this print but I wanted the flowers to stand out a bit more so I used Copics to color in the flower as if the image were a no line image, darkening most of the flower and adding a bit of gray on the leaves and stem.
Before printing the poppies, I added the verse which was offered at Word Art Wednesday.
Final touches - black liquid pearls in the center of the flowers and a few sequins.
After backing the print with black, the card base is Stampin Up's Sahara Sand.

Thanks for looking.  Head over to Words 2 Craft By and enter the challenge.

  3. Marsha, What a lovely card... and I loved that you colored on a pre-colored image. (Gotta remember that trick!) Thanks so much for joining our DT this month over at Words 2 Craft By. :)
