Hi, just popping by to share a card I made while it was raining earlier.
The forecast was for rain later as well but when I checked the latest, rain wasn't coming until tonight at the earliest, wish they would make their mind up.
Anyway as I couldn't play in the garden, I thought I would bring it inside and make a floral card.
I bought this Altenew Hibiscus Bouquet set a while ago and haven't really got to grips with it. I was a tad disappointed with the layering effect of the stamps when I used them before, so played around with the outline stamps instead.
I initially thought about the challenge at LIM, OLC with spots but I'm not sure it qualifies, still the other inspirations were the colours at Altenew and the theme at AAA, in the corner option of flowers.
After masking off a frame on my card, I used my Zig watercolour brush pens in colours suggested by the Altenew picture after stamping and masking my image. I added a few spots of colour to soften the edges and added a black heat embossed sentiment. To make it stand out more, I added some white gel pen to hi light the text and some of the anthers of the blooms.
I do think colouring is quite therapeutic, I was totally lost in the colouring until my OH came in to say it was lunch time!
He's currently outside trying to get a water tank made to catch the forecast rain. It's been an ongoing task as it is far more complicated to assemble than it looked at first and I'm not that much help at the mo, what with my gammy arm. I think we are about 3 weeks into assembly, what with me and the weather! Anyway the physio thinks I'm not a total lost cause, so I'm back there on Wednesday.
Off to walk the dog now before I'm called to help in more construction!
