Spring Flower Patch

Hello Everyone! How has your Monday been? Mine has been rather tiring, last night at work we had a huge storm that passed over our town and caused a bit of damage, our store was flooded out and what looked like a river floating down the aisles, I have never seen anything like it, we all spent the 4hrs that I was there sweeping water out of the building, an absolute mess. It got worse, once I got home I found out that we had water that came into our dining room and cracked the ceiling, along with water on my beautiful antique side board and it was damaged also, so now the task is to get a hold of the insurance company. So hence after all that I am feeling very tired tonight, so hoping for an early night.

But I did manage to make a card for you just about an hour ago.

I started with white card stock for card, on the front of the card I stamped Hero Arts, Pattern Flowers in Tuxedo Memento black ink 2 times onto the white card and also 2 times onto some scratch white card stock, I then coloured the images in with my Copics (no photo of Copics too many used to show in photo). Once all coloured in I cut 4 of the flowers, the larger head ones out and added dimensionals to these and adhered to the same images on the card front, I added some stamped Hero Arts, dragonflies from the Good Fortune stamp set at the top of the card above the flowers adding some extra interest to the card. Lastly, I added a sentiment from the Hero Arts, Everyday Sayings set to the bottom of the card, making it look like it was wrapping around the card and some pearls between the sentiments.

I hope you like today’s card.

Catch you all tomorrow with hopefully another posting.

Enjoy your night.
