Taking a much need break from packing to get creative tonight.
Today's boxes were filled with the contents of both my curio cabinet and china cabinet. I have no idea where it all came from and not sure where it is going to go, but with only 4 weeks left to pack there really isn't time to sort that mystery out.
I really wanted to play along with the Essentials by Ellen June Pin-Sights Challenge. It is the first chance I have had to play with my new stamps and dies from the Spring Release . Here is the mood board we were working from...
I started by putting some Distress Ink on to my craft mat and added lots of water. Then I used transparencies to pick up the colour and smooshed it on to heavyweight white cardstock. Once dry (actually I cheated and used my heat tool) I embossed two of the Mondo Magnolias in gold and die cut with the large and small magnolia dies. The smaller magnolia was adhered with foam tape for dimension. I flicked a few tiny water drops onto the flowers.
I used the "you are my person" sentiment which was what drew my to this stamp set int he first place. I have always been a Grey's Anatomy fan but over the past couple month my daughter and I took it from the top and started at the beginning watching the entire series on Netflix. So this card is going to my daughter who will be 18 in a week--because she is my person!
We have had some gorgeous sunsets here this past week, so I have a couple of photos to share. I had to take them from upstairs because the trees are too high at ground level to capture the view--so just ignore the portables--lol I am feeling inspired to recreate these images on a card.
