I’ve had a great time as the featured blogger on the Hero Blog this week — so fun! AND, I got caught up on making some cards for friends at the same time! This one is for Sally — her birthday was yesterday, but I didn’t find out in time to make her a card so it’s going to be a little late, doh!
Here’s something funny — I was sitting there thinking “I wish I had some kinda faded and worn flowers to go with this color combo” — and then I grabbed a watercolor pencil and colored on a white flower — ta dah, problem solved! You DO have to wait for the flowers to dry before you stick them on tho — otherwise they will keep falling off — ha ha ha!
And, have you seen the new Porcelain line from Basic Grey? Major SWOON!!!! Love the colors — this card was inspired by them. SO YUMMY. Can’t wait to use it!
I also made this card for Nancy — going to make a few more to have them on hand while I have my supplies out.
I did a happy dance when I spotted that American Crafts ribbon a few weeks ago — goes perfectly!
One last thing — there’s a giveaway going on over at the Hero Blog that you just don’t want to miss — click here to enter. It’s for Dave Brethauer’s book, “Card Design: Rubber Stamping with Colored Pencils” — it’s full of great tips for using watercolor pencils + colored pencils — and card ideas.
Hope you have a great weekend! Now I’m off to clean up my stamp area — it’s a mess of truly epic proportions, ha ha ha!
