For the album, I was inspired by this week's Friday Challenge: Color! This color challenge is three pretty autumn shades: Olive, Chocolate, and Pumpkin, one of my favorite combinations. I began by stamping this lovely flower eight times and colored each image in with Copics before cutting them each out. I popped up a few of the blooms for some dimension.
Next, I printed out a happy photograph of my wee one and circle-cut the print with a die and framed it with an olive scalloped frame. I then added a chocolate background, scoring some lines for visual and textural interest and stamped an elegant, simple sentiment. I adhered the entire photo and floral panel to a cloth-covered album, filling the inside with photos to remind Grandmom Rachel that we will be thinking about her on her very special day.
