Today I took a couple of photos along the way to show some of the progress and details in making this card
I printed these poppies from Diane's Daydream Designs set called POPPIES IN A POT.
I used the outlined set so I could paint it myself I painted it with markers and water. When I was done I outlined with a black ink pen. In the first photo I stopped to show the difference between the outlined areas and not.
 In this photo, you can see that it is all outlined and I colored the centers of the flowers. After this stage I masked the flowers and added cream acrylic paint with bubble wrap. I also added copper embossing powder.
 This is what it looked like just sitting in a pile on my desk before it was assembled.
 Here is the finished card.
It is my interpretation of Sketch Challenge 486. I am also entering this in Word Art Wednesday 130


  1. Absolutely gorgeous MariLynn!!! I love your bubble wrap technique, and the beautiful coloring of this image! Your butterflies are always beautiful and the twine is a beautiful touch! LOVE it!!!

  2. MariLynn, this is gorgeous. I see the huge difference in outlined or not. Glad you showed both photos.

  3. MariLynn I love the way you are using mixed media on your cards - it is stunning, and so beautifully 'you'.

  4. Marilynn,
    You are the most amazing artist. This is just such a masterpiece. I like the way you showed us a few steps along the way. Who but you could have ripped paper, a doily , butterfly bound with string and have it turn out so beautifully. The colored image is gorgeous. Thank you for sharing your wonderful art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday. Blessings, Carole

  5. MariLynn, my constant reaction to your artistic creations is "fascinated!" Your blend of mediums has taken your art to new levels and I just sit and look and imagine you making them. How fun for you to walk us through the process! This is gorgeous!
