Surprised that I am back so soon? I did tell you that I would try to be more faithful...right?
Well, in order to get a card made today I needed to keep it simple. Really simple. And what could be simpler than to just use the stamp sets and inks that are already sitting on my desktop, right?
You'll notice that I am using the exact same colours as yesterday's card (see it HERE). Island Indigo, Elegant Eggplant and Pool Party.
And the same stamp set (Beautiful You) although I am using a different sentiment, as well as a few images from that set.
Even my trusty old, clear Wink of Stella. Because it was sitting right there! :)
|"My Girl" dancing in the rain - the puddle at her feet and her skirt are both the same stamp!|
|Falling Petals embossing folder (debossed) simulates raindrops,|
Stamped the image of the girl first - dancing in the rain. Man oh man I love this image.
Then I stamped the sentiment. Once again, a sentiment that I truly love. Something that has been my motto for much of my life (I am the Eternal Optimist). And a sentiment that has carried me through some of the less-than-stellar days in recent weeks and months. Once again.
One of the blotch images from this set (I call it a 'swoosh') was used to stamp the puddle, and also to quickly colour her skirt.
I used an aquapainter to colour the bodice of her dress and her hat. I love my aquapainters. Takes about 20 seconds (tops) to colour using this handy little tool.
Emboss the cardstock with the new, Falling Petals embossing folder. Actually, in this case, I debossed the card. The textured images are indents instead of raised elements. I love changing up the way my embossing folders look, just by reversing their 3D effect sometimes.
|Her hat is collecting raindrops...|
|Isn't it amazing how Wink of Stella makes the hat look "wet"?!|
Wink of Stella to give some wet-look shine to the puddle she is dancing in, as well as the Falling-Petals rain. And then it was time to glue this beauty together.
It has taken me 5 times as long to post about it as it did to actually make it. I told you. Sweet and Simple for this Saturday morning.
