Hello there, all you crafty peeps.
It's a beautiful day here, and hopefully, it's a beautiful day wherever you are today. Even if the weather isn't cooperating, hope you are having a lovely day anyway!!!
I have chosen Sundays to be my day to blog and show you some of what I have been working on during the week. I always have more in my stash than I can possibly blog about, but it's fun to pick a favorite and kind of show that off.
So this past week I received a stamp I had ordered from Waffle Flower. I wasn't sure how much I would be able to use it, but I loved it so much I just had to have it!!!. Turned out I made 2 cards with it because the image of the little girl praying fit just right for a person in the hospital, and my granddaughter's first job.
So I am sure that I will find other occasions too.
Here's my card:
Isn't she so pretty??? I love it!!!
I know it's not a stamp you could use for everyone, but I am a praying woman and sometimes you want people to know that.
I die cut a circle out of the top layer and then ran it through with an embossing folder. I am so glad to see artists using them again. They were kind of forgotten for a while, but I have quite a few from years ago, and this is one of them. They really do add a special interest to a card AND many artists are finding such interesting ways to use them. I can't wait to try those out.
Next was coloring the girl and the flowers that came with the stamp. The flowers were easy peasy. Too small to do any shading. BUT!!! I dread doing hair. I have much more practice to do before I'm good at it, but I think it came out ok. I used pencils, thinking that would be easier than water color, and I think it was. I am starting lessons on pencil coloring from Sandy Allnock. She is so good. Can't wait to put it into practice!!!
Here's the challenges I am entering with this card:
http://timeoutchallenges.blogspot.com/ inspired by something in my home (Bible)
optional twist: embossing (dry embossing on front of card)
https://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.com/ occasions (hospital stay, new job)
https://letscreatechallenges.blogspot.com/ no patterned paper
https://mixitupchallenge.blogspot.com/ anything goes + layering
So this is it for me today...
Hope you enjoyed your time here.
