Polyanthus - Janey's Digi Designs

 For my second card using digi’s from Janey’sDigi Designs I have used the beautiful Polyanthus  image. I knew what this flower was and I love it in happy red and yellow combinations so knew straight away what colours I was using. I love how bright and bold it is, you know me I don’t do subtle very often…. LOL

I have used my Promarkers and Flexmarkers to shade them in. Love the new Chilli colour in my Flexmarkers, think this is my new go to red, it is so lovely and bright J I matted the image onto some black card and added a punched border and some self adhesive ribbon.

I have used sketch #4 by I {Heart} Card Sketches for the layout which I have rotated to better accommodate the image.

The spotty paper is from the Licorice Sherbet pad from Papermania and I used my gorgeous lace edged spotty ribbon. The sentiment is Craftwork Cards mounted onto some black cardstock and raised on 3d foam. I used the large flower bottom right to print out as a single embellishment and teamed this up with some self adhesive Prima swirls bling. Finally I added a small amount of stickles glitter glue to highlight the flower centres
The Polyanthus image can be purchased from the Etsy store. For inspiration please pop over to the blog and Facebook page where our very talented designers will be regularly showcasing these amazing images.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – A5
Paper – Licorice Sherbet pad by Papermania
Sentimet - Craftwork Cards
Tools - Letraset Promarkers & Flexmarkers, Martha Stewart punch, 3d foam squares
Embellishments – Prima bling swirls, Lace edge ribbon, Stickles glitter glue, Papermania self adhesive ribbon
