We are still 'enjoying' cool wet weather this week but we needed rain, so I won't complain. It should be sunny this weekend. I'm anxious to get back out into the gardens, there is always so much to do at this time of year.
Yesterday I was working on cards for Designs by Ryn and today posting one that I created using her Black Eye Susan CM-F3 and Leafy Branch CM-F15 stamps. I have the flower the 'right side up' this time :)
One of my kind blogger friends suggested that I enter this into the Pixie Dust Studio challenge #124 as it's all about embossing ! So I will follow her suggestion and enter ! Thank you Shirl !
The small strip on the LH side was stamped with the Leafy Branch, embossed with Gold and then I blended Wild Honey & Crushed Olive Distress Inks over top. I added a little white with a Prisma Pencil in some of the leaves. I stamped the Black Eye Susan onto the green card stock with Colorbox Platinum Ink.
The Black Eye Susan that is attached to the background was also embossed with gold and coloured a little with my Tombows. I cut it out & added some holograph glitter here & there. I also added a few leaves die cut with Crealies CLCS11.
The Spellbinder Label S4-322 was distressed with Wild Honey. I created the mat behind it by tracing the outside of the die on green cardstock and then cutting it out. Happy Birthday is from a little Kaisercraft set - CS921 Thinking of You.
The ribbon & bow are a sheer rusty brown. I also added a couple of orange rhinestones.
Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate all your visits !
Have a great weekend.
