Good Morning Ladies,
I hope you are all well, we got home last night after a lovely couple of days with Danielle and Simon, we talked non stop, got excited over craft stuff and we have planned to have them come to visit us or we will go back up there in a couple of weeks, we stayed in a lovely hotel that was literally 5 minutes from their house, it was so lovely for me to get some quality time with my lovely friend. 😍
I think that the next couple of days are going to be 'take it easy ' days, mentally and physically! Sadly Paul is at work the next couple of days but I'll be ok, then Friday I have my 2nd Vaccination (which I am dreading) I am going to prepare for the worst and anything less will be a bonus!!
Today's card is a 'different' take on silhouette card, who says Silhouettes had to be black?! I used Tim Holtz Wildflower dies to cut the flower silhouettes. I made quite a few 'messy' backgrounds for the challenge a couple of weeks ago, I didn't love them as a card background but didn't want to throw them away! I know you know what I mean! So I took a couple off of my scraps pile and strategically placed the dies to get good colour variations, I die cut a pile then chose the purple card for the background as there were quite a few purple shades in the background. For the background of the card I took an embossing folder with a subtle pattern and matted it onto the purple card mat, I arranged the flower stems loosely attaching them with glue and foam pads to give variation in depth. I used a small label die in Purple Posy and stamped 'thank you' on it, I put foam pads in the centre of the label die and added glue to the edges, so that the die is almost domed to cover the flower stems.
Quite a simple card, I used Pearlywinks Vibe inks to colour the card that I die cut, finishing with their Glitter spray to give some shinmer, Which you can just see. I hope you like my card and maybe it might inspire you to try something other than black silhouettes.
Sending Love and huge hugs to all of you,
