Hello everyone, as we say goodbye to to the old year, and look forward to a new year full of possibility, it is a good time to look back and reflect on the events that have unfolded in our lives over the past twelve months. Will you be glad to see the back of the past year, or have you had an amazing time? Like me, you may have had a mixture of both, but a new year always seems to be a blank canvas ready for us to make our own mark upon it.
I have made a
simple card to share with you for today's post, using some of my
favourite bits and pieces. I stamped a flower image from the Floral Notes
stamp set onto some pretty Crafty Individuals paper, using Potting Shed Archival Ink and clear embossing
powder. I cut the flowers out, and edged them with a tiny bit of
Seedless Preserves Distress Ink.
I created a Brusho background on a piece
of smooth watercolour paper, using lemon, violet, rose red, white and
sea green. Once the background was completely dry, I stamped a swirl
from the Nature Swirls
stamp set twice onto the background, using Bottle Adirondack Ink. I stuck the flowers to the
background, added a sentiment, and then edged the background with some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I added a layer of pink card to mat the background, before
adhering to a card blank.
