Seeds of Kindness
Good morning crafters. Hope you are well today. As you know I craft on skype with two chums, Sheila and Kathy. Last night Sheila pointed out that all my cards had a coloured stamped image on my blog. She is quite right ofcourse but I will not apologise as I do love stamping and colouring. Mind you she is a good mate so she can say anything to me - hee hee. Anyway, taking her comments into consideration today's card is slightly different. I again started with a 6x6 white card, matted some pink card and then embossed some white card. I then stamped a verse called 'Scatter Seeds of Kindness' which I bought whilst at the NEC last year I think and it was from Inkylicious. I stamped this using a brilliance ink pad. Matted that onto some more pink card. The flower embellishment is all hand made. The pink flower is a Dawn Bibby stamp coloured in with spectrum noir pens and then layered up. The leaves are a mixture of Dawn Bibby stamps and the Glitter Girls stamps. Again they were coloured in with spectrum noir pens. I cut a circle out of some scrap card and then arranged them using collall glue and left it to dry. To be honest I was just playing around at first but was pleased with my end result. I do enjoy making my own embellishments as opposed to buying them. The finishing touch was the gems. Hope you like this and thankyou for taking the time to look.
