To all my blog buddies in the USA...don't think Mother's Day is celebrated on the same day in other countries. So far ours has been pleasant and quiet. Mr. had my breakfast, coffee and a pretty card waiting when I got up. He proceeded to sit out in the porch swing, so I took my food and went out to enjoy the sunshine, blooming things and green trees that are in our neighborhood at present. I felt like I could 'smell the green'. Mr didn't smell a thing he said.
Been trying to finish up some cards using bits and pieces of things I'm finding in the Crapalanche, or else in bins-boxes that are setting around. Many I'd forgotten having done. This is another Art Impression watercolor image I discovered. The mat color and background paper were in another box, and thought these looked pretty together. Not a great card, but an ok one. Good for another birthday, or whatever I might need it for, when a verse is added to the inside.
The stamps are all wooden Art Impression ones. Pot was stamped, colored with Tombow markers for the watercoloring, then other flower stems are added to the pot. Then the image was grounded with a little shadow under. (Art Impressions' Bonnie Krebbs has some good youtube videos showing her style of using these stamps).
- Stitched rectangle (either Lawn Fawn or MFT...don't remember) to cut the shape...burgundy red Bazzil trimmed to fit as a mat. Some Recollections DP - VOS...on a top fold card.
- PTI Hugs sentiment die cut from the same mat color using a single layer. Called it done. This one was pretty fast to come together...all the papers just seemed to float to the surface without a lot of 'hunting for the right thing'.
Thanks for all the sweet comments on the stencil embossing card...so appreciated.
Ya'll enjoy the remainder of the day, and if you're celebrating Mother's Day, sure hope your family is there to enjoy it with you, OR will be with you at a later time. Hugs, and come again when you can set a spell (that's what we say here in the South!).
