Tuesday Trigger - Fine Toothed Comb

So much lovely white space in the current Tuesday Trigger! I was initially thinking of doing some quilled flowers to echo the resin flowers on the comb, and then my idea took a left turn:


Supplies: Flourishes stamps; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spectrum Noir markers; Sakura Stardust gel pen



This is essentially a one-layer card - I've made a panel just so the marker doesn't show on the inside of the card. I was inspired by all the white space, and by the shadow cast by the cup/bowl - crazy, but true. I've used a very pale blue to mimic that shadow around the bouquet, the second 'joy' in the sentiment, and at the border of the panel. 

Here's the Trigger photo:

I'm also going to throw this in over at Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes challenge.
xoxo,
Jessi
