Hi everyone. Hope everyone had a good week. It's been terribly cold here, with snow through out the week. This cold weather is suppose to last at least into next weekend. Temperature going down to -37C (-34F) I am so ready for spring!
For my card today I'm using a set from Altenew called Persian Motifs. At first I wasn't sure how I was going to colour this - pencils, copics?? and then I thought about my sakura pens. So I started my card and this is how it turned out:
I started by white embossing the flowers and leaves on some Tim Holtz watercolour paper. I then watercoloured using the Sakura Metallic Jelly roll pens. You don't need to add much ink to the paper - a little goes a long way. I know you can't see it in the picture but in real the leaves and flowers just glisten with that bit of metallic in the ink - so pretty.
I added the sentiment using PTI -Wet Paint III stamp set and smokey grey versafine ink.
Added a strip of paper down the left side to pick up the colour of the flowers - this was a scrap piece from one of the Memory Box paper packs. Finished off with some sequins.
So overall it was a simple card. I will try this again using some different colours.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. It's a 3 day weekend for some of us Canadians - Family Day on monday -for a couple of the provinces.
I want to leave you with this adorable picture. After shoveling one night afterwork, I noticed our friendly bunny around the bird feeders looking for scraps. I went in the house, looked out the kitchen window and there he/she was sitting on the deck, so grabbed my camera.So sweet, I would just love to cuddle him. :)
Thanks for your visit. Till next time.....
