Celebrate Today And Every Day.
Still gently working towards gaining some semblance of crafting mojo. Not really winning, but kind of enjoying the process. This is an attempt at a one layered card. I did have fun quietly building the landscape with some subtle background stamping first done with a favorite Hero Arts Woodblock stamp called Old Letter Writing. I lightly tissued off sections of the distress inked rubber stamp which led to the rather worn and faded background text layer. After that, I built up my garden scene with stamps from across a few Papertrey Ink sets using a selection of Memento inks. At the time of writing this, I was having a massive brain fade and cannot recall the exact names of the sets used, and more to the fact, I felt too lazy to go and look. Forgive me. I am sure though, that being the doyens of craft that you all are, you'll recognise the exact set employed, straight away. The bird and its little wafty trail are from Papertrey Ink's Happy Trails set I recall. The uneven scalloped card bottom was made by using one of Tim Holtz's On The Edge Alterations Dies called, just simply, Scallops. As per my custom, I stained the edges of the card, stuck on several Copic colored rhinestones and...Tada! That's my one layer card done.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Here's to a day full of dazzling sunshine and flowers for us all!
