I'm sorry I haven't been active lately but I have been out with a blown knee and then I got another chest infection. (I actually think the first one didn't go away properly). I am slowly but surely getting back to business.
It has been a trying couple of weeks but I am hopeful that I will feel back to myself soon.
But just because I have been sick doesn't mean I don't have anything to show you today. I was actually ahead of myself and had several cards to share with you. So here's today's share!
I chose to spotlight "Love and Sympathy" for my cards today. This stamp set will be retiring soon and I wanted to let you have a look at it before it is gone!
The colors for this card are Coastal Cabana and Old Olive. I used a masking tape technique to make the background. The focal image is stamped in Memento Black. The card base is Whisper White.
This card is done very simply. I used Whisper White as my card base and the top layer with the stamped image is actually water color paper. I used Melon Mambo and Garden Green Markers directly onto the stamp. Then I misted the stamp with water and stamped onto the watercolor paper. I love the softness of this technique. I lightly colored the edges with Daffodil Delight ink and an aqua painter. The side sentiment was Teeny Tiny Wishes and I free handed the doodles.
This card was done in So Saffron a color I don't use much and now I'm wondering why lol. I used a Very Vanilla layer under the focal image. I also used the long stamp with the dashes from Butterfly Basics. Once again I used markers to color in the stamp and then added a pearl to the center. A tiny Butterfly from Petite Papillion and a few more pearls to embellish.
And there friends you have it. I hope you liked the cards I have for you today. Hopefully I will get back to my regular schedule!
