I must say that I am extremely happy that it is Friday and that I don't work the weekend, really needing to do some much needed catch up around here and have some down time..
Yesterday, before I headed to work I received my order that I have been waiting for from Simon Says Stamp and in that little bundle of happiness, I brought some Dylusions to have a play around with...these are so bright and beautiful and the depth of colour to them is amazing..
So not really having an idea as to what I was going to do, I decided I would start out in spritzing the colours onto the water colour paper, dry off and sat and pondered for a moment..I then pulled out my Hero Arts, Everything Flowers stamp and inked it up with some Archival Jet Black Ink..trimmed down a panel and realising that the colour in the background was super intense..so without worrying about staying in the lines and letting myself have a free hand, I added white pencil to tone things down and then matched up the Dylusions colours that I had used, with Inketense pencils and added more depth in a much more subtle way..
I added the panel to some black card stock, then onto a kraft panel that I had stamped with white ink, added this to the card front and stamped a sentiment...
Looking at this card again today, it certainly is not something I would normally create, but it was fun anyways..
Well, I must venture out of bed and get myself some breakfast organised..
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday, I am hoping that my day runs a little smoother then it did yesterday..
