Hi all! I have one card to share and then I will be taking a little blogging break…..I have been fighting a sinus infection for over a month and it has come back with a vengeance, so I’m going to take a little breather and try to recuperate. I’ll be back on Sunday for the Paper Players challenge. Maybe, just maybe, if I feel a bit better, I can return sooner! I covet your prayers, as I have never had an illness or my allergy issues linger this long!
My card uses the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday sketch #61:
I wanted to do some watercoloring and the image I had in mind fit the sketch better if I turned it on its side:
I stamped the image and watercolored it with some reinkers and an aquapainter, then decided to use the Designer Frame to emboss it…..and I did it upside down! But I liked the effect, especially how the eggs “sat” in the little scallops on the side!
The rest of the card uses images from the same set, Nature Walk and French Foliage as well. Lots of embossing, a little piece of First Edition newsprint and a couple pieces of ribbon & lace, and it was done! If you have any questions about what I’ve used here, please send me an email (not a comment!)!
Since I have been too sick to watch the baby, I don’t have any fresh photos to share, but I do have a couple of my indoor flowers. My Christmas cactus decided to throw out a couple of blooms, and my African violets are bursting out of their pots. I am good at getting them to bloom but not so good at pruning and repotting them! Here you go:
Sorry, I take better picture of cards than I do flowers!! See you on Sunday!
