So to start my week of honouring, today I will be honouring the lovely, sweet, talented, inspiring and caring Jennifer McGuire..as we all know she inspires us all on a daily basis..I love her style and the way her mind works with different techniques..mind blowing actually.
To honour my friend Jennifer, I have created a card based on this beautiful one that she made a number of months ago.
I love the simplicity of it and the wonderful colour combo, a true masterpiece and a card that would cheer anyone.
Here is the card that I have created.
I wanted to use some of the techniques that Jennifer uses on some of her creations, that being the use of distress inks...I took some white card stock, stamping one of the flowers from the new Hero Arts/Basic Grey line, Hello Luscious Bold Flowers stamp set with some Versamark ink, embossing with some white embossing powder. I applied distress ink, Victorian Velvet heavily over the top and flicked water onto the inked card stock, heat setting with heat gun, applying Walnut Stain distress ink to the outer edges of the card stock. Next, taking the Flowing Flowers and Leaves background stamp, inking it with some Soft Sand ink and stamping onto the front of an Eggshell note card. Adhering the distressed card stock to the card front using foam dimensionals, adding a trimmed tag with a stamped sentiment from the Everyday Messages stamp set. Finally, adding some pearls either side of the sentiment to complete the card.
I find that anything Jennifer creates is always such masterpieces, I felt for this card I wanted to find a card that she had created a little while back and share that beauty with you once again.
Now I hope you have enjoyed the first day of honouring, make sure that you check out Jen's blog (but seriously I know that I don't need to tell you to do that, because if you are like me, you check in there everyday to see what she has created..LOL).
I will be back here tomorrow with my next person to honour!
Oh and make sure you follow all week, because at the end of the week there will be some fun for you all to join in and a prize at the end.
I hope you have enjoyed today, look forward to seeing you all again tomorrow.
