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!
A gorgeous flower stamp and awesome text!
My favourite card so far with these stamps!
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
