Yeah - It is Saturday
Good early morning from the State of Wisconsin -the sun is shining and the weather is suppose to be in the 70's - which is good since I do need to get outside and do some work. I will be polite though and wait till 9 to start mowing. I have done some housework - so I think I should be able to play with a little paper - before I start mowing - I highly believe in the reward system - work a little - play a little - ok the play sometimes turns into alot - but oh well - if I am happy that is the most important thing.
Today I am sharing a card which can work for two challenges. CAS-ual Friday's challenge is to use bling on your clean and simple card. I always struggle what is clean and simple - in my eyes this is clean and simple compared to most of my many layer cards. Also Hero Arts has a monthly challenge and this month one of them is Thinking of You cards.
I have been wanting to use this Hero Arts background stamp for ages. I stamped on watercolor paper with versamark. I then embossed with white embossing powder. I colored the leaves and flowers with Copics (now that was time consuming). The flowers are two colors of Copics. The first color was too light so I added another color and this is what turned out. I then colored the sentiment strip with the same technique and then stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I went looking for some green ribbon and this ribbon must be recycled from something. Very sheer but it accents the green in the leaves. I matted the image and sentiment with black to ground them. Bling was added to the center of all the flowers.
Everyone enjoy your day. Hope you find time to play also.
