Hello, everyone, and welcome back! Or should I say thanks for hanging around until I came back from my long hiatus due to our recent home move.
All is very good, we are loving our new location and my craft room is back in operation again. Having newly purged and organized all my stamps sure makes it inviting to sit down and make a card.
Which I did, here it is.
Our new home has sweet pink peonies planted in the garden that have bloomed prolifically this week. They were the inspiration for this card stamped with the Sunshine and Smiles set from Clearly Besotted.
I heat embossed the hollyhocks in white, adding layers of color with Distress markers and a brush. I cut the flourish in vellum and white card stock and layered them together with a pearl to cover the glue dot.
I haven't used pearls in ages, and they added just the bit of elegance the card needed. Making a card again, getting into my watercolors, ahh... was just the therapy I needed.
Thanks to you who have kept checking back in my absence or told me that you've missed me. I'm happy to be blogging again and I sure appreciate you!
Find delight in your craft.
Make something beautiful!
If you have a minute to leave a comment, I'd love it! Here's my question - do you enjoy occasional chatter or a non-card photo once in awhile? Or do you like it better when I get to the point with the project share with minimal details? Something in -between?
Here is the view from my kitchen sink of the flowers that inspired my card and add beauty to my day!
Below are some of the supplies I used:
