Well, how lucky are we, yet another beautiful day, positively hot, blue skies and wall to wall sunshine! I have been out in the garden again, tidying up our fruit garden. Gooseberries and strawberries finished fruiting now but the plums are coming along nicely. This sunshine is ripening them very quickly. We don't have as many plums as we had last year but not grumbling. Lots of red admiral butterflies in the garden over the last few days but a lack of wasps !! which I have to say, I'm quite pleased about as I don't like them having been stung in the past. Tonight I have a card for you that I made for my FB friend's charity. For this I have used an Indigo Blue stamp I bought a week or so ago. I have also used Imagination Crafts fabulous new Starlight paints to colour the image.
Before I explain how I made this card, I would like to welcome my newest follower of my blog, Sheila Ridley. I do hope you enjoy your visits and thank you for being a follower.
Take an A4 piece of cream linen card and trim half and inch from one long edge, then fold in half to make an A5 sized card. Using a black Archival ink pad, stamp the tulip towards the left side of the card.
Stamp the sentiment to the right of the tulip. Paint the tulip with watered down cyclamen and the stem with menthol Starlight paints.
These paints leave a beautiful sheen which unfortunately does not show up on this photograph.
Stamp the lace border at the top of the card, using the black inkpad and at the bottom, approximately three quarters of an inch from the bottom of the card.
Glue a row of pink sequin hearts along the bottom, below the black stamped lace border and three hearts above the sentiment.
Well that's all from me tonight, have a wonderful sun filled day tomorrow and I will be back again soon.
Love and rainbows,
Big hugs Jennifer xx.
