Hasn't it been HOT!!!!!! What a gorgeous day. Hope it's been as good for everyone else.
I've done absolutely nothing today apart from pottering in the garden, filling a paddling pool (again), drinking coffee with my Sister-In-Law and reading a book. What bliss.
It's now 10pm and I shall do a bit of crafting with a cool glass of wine-does that sound tempting?
I have managed to finish a few more cards with that box of glimmer misted papers I found last week, so I thought I'd share another one with you tonight.
I had sprayed the background with starburst stains and already stamped a blue fern on this one, but it didn't really work and had been left in the box so I decided to change the colour scheme and stamped other Artylicious meadow flowers in a green and then the main one in fuchsia pink. I then inked up a piece of stampboard in the same blue as the background and stamped the same flower in the pink and just placed it on top to give it another dimension. The edges of the stampboard were sanded back to make them stand out.
I stamped the main white card with the same flowers but in a paler blue ink and just added the sentiment and some blue organza ribbon.
The main stamped image has a lovely golden sheen to it when the light catches it from the starburst stains.
This was definitely a case of leaving something alone when it was not working and coming back to it with fresh eyes.
Thanks for looking and have a great Sunday.
