I’m feeling so blessed to be home on a lovely sunny Monday and to be able to create a card (with my Sister in Law Judy too,online) I was casting around for a new (to me) and simple challenge and so I happened upon this week’s Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #177 and decided to give this a try!
I took a little liberty to turn it on its side. I used stamped the “blessings” sentiment with Versafine black, then again with versamark which I embossed with a detail white powder. I layered on some Tim Holtz distress ink (Barn Door) to make the sentiment stand out. Next I used a sharpie in black to create a shadow. I stamped the smaller words – these words are all from Honey Bee Stamps – aren’t they lovely?
I added the corner stamps on, a floral stamp from Art-C I stamped and glitter embossed the blossom again and bumped it up with foam tape. I painted extra leaves on using my Tombow markers. I could not resist adding a sequin in the middle of each and then spattering some red watercolor paint drops across the card to finish it all off!
