Good morning. Did everyone survive the wind storm yesterday with winds up to 100km? (60 mi).
No damage on our property, just a few branches here and there, but down the road a huge branch fell off a tree right into the front of a house smashing their front door. I"m sure there was a lot of uprooting trees and toppled signs, garbage bins etc. The winds were so strong on the Burlington skyway it actually flipped over a 18 wheeler - now that is strong winds. They closed the skyway for several hours. Needless to say the winds have died down over night, thank goodness!
Today's card is a stamp from Penny Black called - A Moment in Time. It's from their latest release.
I placed some water colour paper into my Misti and positioned the stamp to where I wanted it.
I then added colour to the stem, huffed and stamped, I did this several times with different green distress markers until I had the look I wanted. I then moved to the flower, again, one impression at a time with various red/corals until I had what I wanted. I then removed the paper and added some of the lightest red tone to fill in the open spaces and then added some darker shades of red for depth.
I then trimmed down to the size of card I needed - this is a large stamp - I ended up making the card
6.25 x 4.5. Once cut down I sponged some distress wild honey, a bit of crushed olive and then very little walnut stain.
I used a background image to stamp in the background using wild honey, just inking the stamp here and there.
I then put my paper back in my Misti and lined up the sentiment and stamped. I repeated this 3x to get a clear crisp black image.
Finished off with some sequins, and I used clear wink of stella all over the flower.
