Be Awesome On a Cloudy Day ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your having an awesome weekend! Another card I’ve created with my current obsession with Tim Holtz Flower Garden stamps to share with you today and here it is …
I know it's a small one and almost CAS but I love it
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Crop Stop Blog Anything Goes
The Shabby Tea Room 255 Sweet as Sunshine:
that is what this looks like to me!
For some reason these stamps and my H2O paints are my complete obsession right now. For this card I really wanted to keep the colours light, much lighter than I have before and for some reason this card makes me feel that it is sunshine on a plate! At the moment this spiked flower is my favourite of all the flowers and I love that I get to create the length of the stem that I want too.
# I used white paper and three distress inks to create a richly coloured yellow paper, I used ink blending foam with the inks, and a spray bottle of water to get the usual dimpling and I used that to cover the card base and a little more to matt the sentiment onto: simples!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this today ttfn Karen x
