Gosh did you hear that noise last night? It was a loud whoosh as the weekend just skated past!! It was a good weekend at Chez Hettie but very quick. Anyone know where that shiny thing in the sky has gone?
I have been meaning to share this card I made a little while ago for a certain friend of mine. It took a fair while to get to the recipient so didn't share when I meant to.
Background was made from swooshing some DIs onto my craft mat (can't for the life of me remember what colours exactly but if you need to know I will try and remember a little harder). Then I sprayed some water and dabbed the card into it drying, and repeating.
After the background was dry I took one of the colours and my favourite Tim Holtz stamp and stamped it. The Sentiment is Hero Arts and was NBUS at the time!
Next flowers. Now I know this person really likes flowers so cut several layers using a Sizzix die. Coloured with more DIs before drawing "veins" in with Copics. The camera has made the veins look quite stark but IRL they were a little muted.
Out came my moulding mat and I set about making three different flowers just by moulding them differently in each case. I liked the look, though the card tried to split into layers so I must remember not to use that particular card again for this. Some leaves which I coloured again with DI (Mowed Lawn - funny how I remember this one!) and then set about adhering the flowers to the background.
One envelope to match and I was ready to post the card over the water.
I used Snippets on this card so off to join the Snippets Playground.
Have a great week, and if anyone sees the yellow shiny thing please put it back in the sky.
Thanks for calling by.
