Hello my friends! I’m sorry that this project didn’t post for you on Monday. I thought I had set it up to do so, but technology had different plans. I hope you had a fab weekend. I spent some time doing a few little odd jobs to finish up our laundry room overhaul. Just a few more projects to do in there and I’ll show it off. And then I also spent A LOT of time writing cards.
Writing and sending handmade cards is an important part of staying connected. I hope you’re doing the same, because old emails will not be printed and held dear by your loved ones when you are gone. A handwritten message holds so much more power than some typed words. Please send your beautiful cards to the people you love.
Enough lecturing for me today, hee hee. Let’s take a look at this pretty card I have to share.
The stamp set I’ve used on this card is called Helping Me Grow. It’s a new floral set in the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Occasions Catalogue that you’re going to love.
Before I watercoloured this flower, I sponged around the image with Soft Sky Ink. I love the lightly shadowed appearance this gives. And because Soft Sky is such a light colour, it won’t interfere with your watercolouring of the flower. Another tip for you: when you’ve got a brightly coloured image like this, don’t be afraid to keep the rest of your card clean and simple. It really makes that flower image POP!
