So after a really busy day at work and having a rotten headache, almost migraine at work I am finally able to relax for the night and I look forward to my sleep in, in the morning, before having to go to work again in the afternoon.
So I made this card yesterday and I was so thrilled as my mojo finally came back, I so don't like when it decides it is going to go and have a holiday, especially when you are eager to craft and everything you touch turns out horrible.
I know, I know, I can hear you saying it, "enough prattling on, get on with the card", well here it is. I used a new set of Hero Arts stamps that arrived in a parcel to me on Friday.
I started out using a Hero Arts, Cream Card, one of the very few that I have, as I cannot seem to find anywhere in Australia to buy these and would really love to, so if anyone has any knowledge of where I can purchase these, send me a quick message through formspring or email me to let me know, I would be ever so grateful.
Anyway, getting on, I took my Hero Arts, Flourish Background stamp and stamped over the front of the cream card using some Hero Arts, Soft Sand Shadow Ink. Next, I took my white gel pen and having been inspired by the wonderful and ultra talented Kathy Racosin with her technique of using wonderful white dots I added some dots to parts of the flourishes on the card, I set this aside to dry. Whilst the dots where drying I took some white card stock and stamped three butterflies from the Hero Arts, Designer Butterflies stamp set and coloured them in with my Copics, once happy with the colouring, I added more white dots to the butterflies for a little added interest and a matching theme to the card front. I cut each image out and taking the same stamps again I stamped the butterflies directly onto the card front. I adhered each of the coloured butterflies to the corresponding butterflies on the card front using some Glossy Accents. I left this to dry and whilst the butterflies were drying I cut a strip on white card stock and stamped a sentiment from the Hero Arts, Bee Happy stamp set. I adhered the sentiment strip to the bottom of the card and lastly, I added some rhinestones to the card and corner rounded the corners.
Here are some other views of the card, I tried to have a couple of close ups so you could see the white dots.
So I hope that you all have a wonderful night and are staying nice and warm, or for others that may be in other countries reading my blog that are in Summer are staying nice and cool.
Hugs to you all!
