Why Rosie's Book?

While growing up, I had a dear friend, Renee, that lived next door and with whom I spent much of my childhood. We grew, in different directions, and went on our merry way. Many years later, I ran into her parents and they kindly reminded me of the laughs they still have over my book. “What book?” I wondered with a puzzled look. "I don't remember a book." Hardy laughter accompanied their response. At some time during our childhood, I tried to convince Renee about something that her parents didn’t agree with. I told her that proof of its truth could be found “in my book.” Naturally she went home and tried to convince her parents of the same thing but they weren’t falling for it. She needed an edge and told them emphatically, “It’s in Rosie’s book!” After they caught their breaths from reborn laughter, they let me know how “Rosie’s book” has been cited for many other things throughout the years. They’ve also mentioned that they’d like to see “Rosie’s book” one day. I can’t remember all of the things that I said were in “my book” but I’m sure my dear friend’s parents can recall much more than I ever knew about – LOL!!! So, here it is . . . my version of things you might find In Rosie’s Book . . .

Card Art with Copics: Crafts and Me Stamps Foxgloves by Janna Prosvirina

Crafts and Me Stamps carries an exclusive line of fabulous rubberstamps designed by one of their newest artists Janna Prosvirina.  I've used Foxgloves on an inspirational card.  You can find this image as a rubberstamp here.

This photo shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image.  This was a perfect image for using the feather blending technique to smoothly transition the addition of different color families.  I also added thin layers of light colors to the background then spotted my colorless blender for a mottled effect.

To allow this detailed image to shine, I added just a few paper flowers handmade with Punch Bunch punches.  Here's a closer view of my handmade bell flowers lightly painted with Diamond Stickles for amazing sparkle.

I've layered patterned papers from a Memory Box Viola paper pad with Bazzill cardstock.  A Spellbinders Large Labels die cut frames my image.  The sentiment is from a Close To My Heart Pair-a-Phrase set.

Here's a photo of my completed card front showing my use of Crafts and Me Stamps' Foxgloves image as designed by Janna Prosvirina . . .
