Hello everyone, hope you are off to a good start with your day. How is it going for you?
I'm thinking of someone going through some rough times with her health and made this card for her. She loves flowers and has a beautiful garden so I chose the Simple Silhouettes stamps from Clearly Besotted and dies.
I colored the images with Distress Markers and used the English Brick Wall stencil from MFT for the backdrop. I wanted to get in just a teeny bit of watercoloring, so I chose to color with my Sakura Koi watercolors for the vase.
I have a story to tell about the vase. As I was coloring and going for the softly marbled look, it began to resemble a favorite vase of mine. It was a teacher gift I got 40 years ago from one of my students and I still use it often! Helen's mother had taken a ceramics class and made it for me.
Just a reminder that the things we make are unlike anything else. When we give them to others, it is giving a part of ourselves.
Hoping I've brought a smile to your face today. Hugs~
Find delight in your craft.
Make something beautiful!
