Hello my lovelies, just dropping in for a wee bit, I've been real crazy busy at my desk doing a few things at a time again, I have been so inspired by all of you amazing artist who kindly visit my crazy nest.
The new challenge with the Dragons is with feathers, well you can guess I was flapping my feathers all over my room, I'll save that for my next post, oh and I'm working on a special box eekkss that's been some big fun. Enough nattering :).
On to my card, a Lady at swimming asked me to make a 25th anniversary card for the gang at swimming, to sign...
This was pretty basic, I used a 12 x 12 sheet of my botanical pad, I used a plain sheet for the base, stamped on it with some script, and one of my favorite sentiment. I cut out another embossed page in strips for the design on the top and bottom edged everything with pomegranate stamping up ink.
I tore this piece from a bought card from my stash , edged it with the pomegranate ink, and used worn lipstick on the inside, it makes the words stand out better.
I cut the hearts in the frame out from another card in my stash, stenciled in the 2 and 5 in white, gold and black, I roughed up the frame with my finger nail ,I have very hard ones, my tools :) .. Then inked it with mowed lawn. I added a few pearls from the dollar store..
The back needed some weight, I cut out the embossed lace from the same paper, it's lovely paper. I added some dots along the top of the lace with my faber castell big white pen..
I added a small sentiment inside, leaving lots of room for all the signatures.
I"ll be around when I'm taking breaks from my desk, it's calling to me right now, really, I have to gesso my cardboard box..
My buddy Sheila is off this weekend, I and my friend Jan gathered a bunch of gorgeous maple leafs, Sheila and I are going to make some roses out of them, I'm real excited about that..
Hope you all have a wonderful creative week, ((( BIG HUGS ))).
