Good Morning Girls, well the sun is out again though it does look a bit hazy, not sure if thats the Volcanic ash or just because weve had such lovely weather recently. I looked in my box of premade cards last week and discovered that I had no Anniversary cards, and I thought Id better get a move on and make some as Ive got quite a few friends whos Anniversarys all seem to come together, and this is the first one I made on Saturday though I do still have a few more to make as well, but thats for another day.
The image is one of the Just-Rite Circle Stamps a beautiful Hydranga image and Ive actually coloured it with my Faber Castell prisma colouring pencils as I felt I had more control over them, and as the mop heads dont all have the same colour at any one time, I though it would be easier to get the colour range with the pencils.
I then cut the image out and the sentiment which is another of the same make stamps with my Nestabilitie circle dies, and made two mounts out of blue pearlescent card with the scalloped ones.
The card itself is a 6.50"x 5.50" size, and unusal one for me, as the image is rather small it looked really lost on a bigger card, I used the sketch that was published for this weeks Mos challenge as it seemed to fit the card design better, and the three papers Ive used are from left over bits I had in my stash box, they are I believe all designs from the Nitwit Downloads.
The image was then mounted in the centre with the sentiment to the left at the bottom, Ive also popped some white gems down the right hand side, and a gorgeous Daisy flower that I picked up at Hobbycrafts in a sale, the punched out leaves are from a new Leonie Em Maidenhair leaf punch, I love it, its so dainty.
Well I suppose Id better get on, Ive been washing windows and nets a bit of Spring Cleaning each week hopefully will make the house smell a bit cleaner. So take care enjoy the sunshine.
