Page Maps

Every quarter, Becky Fleck of PageMaps dishes out 10 fabulous sketches to get those creative juices flowing with her CardMaps. Well, this month some of the lovely ladies from Flourishes did the honors and took her sketches to bring CardMaps to life with beautiful and creative samples for each and every sketch. To check out CardMaps for September, click here and then click on the CardMaps link on the left.

I was so honored to be asked to participate with a sample for this quarter's CardMaps! Since this was posting on September 1st, I decided to do Flourishes September flower from A Year In Flowers, Set 3. I'm so ready for FALL (did I say that already, LOL?) and asters certainly say "Fall" for me. I stamped the image on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers with a little Prismacolor shading. The rest should be pretty easy to figure out :)

Thanks for stopping by! Now I'm off to check out the other designers' projects!

Paper: Classic White (Flourishes); Pear Pizazz (SU); Wild Raspberry 8 x 8 pad (K & Co,)
