Hi Everyone, hope your week is going well. One good thing is that it is Friday - whoot, whoot, but then on a sad note this is the end of my weeks vacation, although I do have Monday off, so back to work on Tuesday.
Weather has been on the cool side this week hovering around low 50's some sun, some cloudy days, but that didn't stop Bill and I to venture out to do some birding. We are suppose to climb back up into the 70's this weekend. So on the cloudy days I was able to create a couple of cards, since it's too dark for bird pictures.
Today I'm sharing a card using an older Penny Black stamp called Aspire.
I started by inking my flowers using Tombow markers, huffed then stamped onto some white card stock. I then cut it out using a square nestabilities die. For my sentiment, which is also from Penny Black, I stamped this using black Archival Ink onto some shimmer/pearl vellum. I bought a few sheets of this years ago (yes I'm a hoarder- because I don't think you can buy this anymore). I wrapped the ends around my image and taped on the back side. Layered the image onto a couple different pieces of blue card stock, then onto a Night of Navy card base. I know you can't see the background I stamped on the base card very well, but I stamped a Justrite rose garden background stamp using versamark. In real it is so pretty, but I couldn't get the camera to pick it up. The card base actually looks black in the picture - so you will have to just imagine it - LOL.
To finish off I used my wink of stella clear pen for the flowers, a string of pearls and a small flower from Wild Orchid Crafts.
There you have it, a fairly simple card don't you think?
