Flower Jar Poster Card


I had posted a Thank You card earlier (June 2nd) that I made using this wonderful digital image from Mo Manning and was so pleased at how it was perfect for fussy cutting that I wanted to make a large poster card using the same image.

As any of you know who follow my blog (bless you), I LOVE fussy cutting. This is how I started the poster card. I print the digital image on white cardstock and then again on each of the patterned papers I want to use. (I also added a 5th patterned paper after I started.) Then I start cutting the individual pieces from the patterned papers and layering them onto the main image printed on the white cardstock. All of the individual pieces are edged with a black marker before gluing them to the main image.

This time I also used a patterned paper for the water in the jar as I had colored the water in the Thank You card with a marker. On this poster card the leaves and stems are the only parts of the image colored with markers and the image is outlined with a blue marker to give it a shadow..

HOT, hot, hot today and tomorrow here in this part of WI - in the 90's both days! I turned on the air conditioner for the first time today - too hot and humid to worry about the cost. Hopefully it will be cooler after a couple of days. Sever storms again also in the forecast. Wishing you sunshine but cool breezes where you are!
