Finally got a chance to get a better picture of this card. Some fellow cardmakers were sent fabric Yo Yo's to create with. It will be fun to see what everyone comes up with.
Of course, I am boring. I made a card with a flower with a yo yo center.
I had the blue background already made. I believe I just dipped the watercolor paper in distress inks. I don't know which blue I used. I used some green paint and stencil to add the dots to the background. I added more texture with embossing paste through a stencil. The black flower was cut with the Silhouette. I cut 3 layers and glued them together to add a little dimension to the flower base. Since I had fabric on the card, I wanted to make a fabric bow also. This fabric is flannel. After I laid the card out, I decided I needed to add some black into the background so used a new Prima Stamp. A sticker sentiment from SRM Stickers finishes off the card.
I am going to enter this card in the currently monthly challenge at Mixed Media Card Challenge. The challenge is blue. I think there is enough blue in the background and the bow and flower have a shade of blue in it.
Today at 4:30 I started a new chapter in my life. I retired. I am excited that I will have some more time to create and explore some new areas of interest.
