Flowers in blue
It's a beautiful day here in SW Ontario, no humidity, nice breeze and sunny, a perfect summer day! I've been spending my day outside, but thought I should come in for a moment or two and post a card.
I did this card a few weeks back. The stamp I used is a new release from Hero Arts called Flowers on a Stem.
For my card, I coloured directly on the stamp using distress markers, spritzed and then stamped on 110lb white c/s. I then cut out the flowers using spellbinders majestic labels twenty-five. I had laying on my table a white piece of cardstock cut from spellbinder tile works. The wheels got turning and from there the card came together. The ribbon is really not that bright of blue in real life. It's funny how a camera can pick up colours and show them differently than what they really are.
Stamp: Hero Arts - flowers on a stem
Ink: black versafine, distress markers - broken china, faded jeans, stormy sky, forest moss
paper: 110 lb white cougar, blue bazzill
dies: spellbinders - majestic labels twenty-five, tile works, cuttlebug tag die
misc: seam binding ribbon, silver twine, pearls
Thanks for the visit today, I'm off to enjoy this beautiful day we are having. I think a bike ride is in store for early evening.
Till next time....
