Hello! A happy Sunday to you! Having a pretty good day over here. Started with a great message at church, some lunch than I went and canvassed our street for Heart and Stroke. Was waiting for it to get warmer, but it wasn't happening! At least I wore snow pants! :> We all had some nice Sunday naps and now I am getting my home ready for some company! I am hosting a few girl friends over to watch the Oscar's! Looking forward to some girl chat, the Oscar's and yummy food, it doesn't get better. Oh wait it could if we fit some crafting in there! LOL Maybe I'll stamp a bit before they come....
Today I have a sunny warm card to share. Over in the Hero Arts Flickr Group my fellow hostess Sally is hosting a color challenge, more info here.
Isn't it beautiful? The rich colors, so warm and inspiring of what is to come when this winter is over! I don't know if you've noticed but I was lacking in mojo the last bit and struggling to create. It was frustrating as I had more time to create but just couldn't! I've gotten some new stamps and such and feel like I am back with it and am brimming with ideas! This color challenge was a great start as these are different colors for me and caused me to get out of my box, here is my card:
I stamped the Tall flower by HA onto some white cardstock and colored it with distress inks, than sprayed perfect pearls and water on it to give it shimmer, and to get it to blend better. I love the way the flowers turned out. I am playing around with my card layouts trying to be different and came up with this one. I stamped the red scallop with envelope pattern in vintage photo, the red was a bit bright so it made it work better. For the sentiment strip I did something new to me, I colored it with wild honey distress ink first than stamped the sentiment on top, to get it to match the yellow flower. I was just going to do a kraft strip but am so glad I thought of this instead! Here is a photo in the bright sunshine you can sorta see the shimmer better!
Well that's it for me, I gotta go and clean up my house and get started on dinner! You know it's time when your youngest keeps coming up to you and saying hungry in there little voice saying it perfectly! :> And your husband reminds you that you had an early lunch remember? Pulled pork sandwiches, so excited!
