Hello … bonjour! Hope you had a magical new year celebration … and that 2016 has started wonderfully! I have a little floral number to share with you this evening …
Some cards are shy … they’re reluctant to be made … they need encouragement to come out of their shell … even when they’re CAS … this is one of those cards! The first version hit the paper bin after my ‘invisible join’ in the stem (to make it a long one) turned out to be eyecatchingly not invisible. The second version was finished and ready for it’s photo shoot when a fully loaded, wandering watercolour brush danced rather energetically across it … ooops (that wasn’t my exact word, but I’ll leave that to your imagination!). So, here’s my third attempt … a Papertrey bloom stamped onto a white card panel, with colour detail on the flower head, leaves and stem added with Promarkers … and a little delicate Wink of Stella pollen-like splatter sprinkled over the top. The sentiment is from SSS. The panel was trimmed and popped up onto the card base over a slender strip of striped DP. Phew … voilà … made it!
I’m playing along with …
Papertrey Ink Make It Monday – Adding Colour To Stamped Images (great video from Laurie)
TE Share Joy Challenge – Keep It CAS (sorry, no TE goodies … mine are Christmassy ones!)
SSS Wednesday – Party (a birthday’s a great excuse to party!)
Have a great weekend … thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
