Hello Everyone! Today I was playing around in my craftroom and trying to do some watercolour pieces - which all ended up in the bin! So don't look for them soon, they aren't coming back! Perhaps it was frustration, or perhaps it's because I have known so many friends to have lost their loved ones of late, that I decided to make a Sympathy card. To escape from the watercolour disaster, I've reached for Lilies and Butterflies by JustRite Papercraft and had some therapeutic mix and match stamping!
I've used a base of River Rock (is this still available? Not sure, but I really like this colour) and punched the bottom with the Deco Shell border punch. Next is a piece of Marina Mist cut with the largest rectangle from A2 Stitched Banners and Rectangles and attached some white ribbon around it. I've then cut a piece of white card with the smaller rectangle, also from A2 Stitched Banners and Rectangles and stamped a variety of stamps from the Lilies and Butterflies clear stamp set to create the finished image. The sentiment is from Sweet Flowers and Vines, stamped in black and then I've sponged around the edges with Antique Linen ink. To finish I've used one of my favourite new products - Nuvo Crystal Drops - in Wedgewood Blue. I love this stuff!! :)
