Snow is Gone

The snow is gone! We had temperatures near 60F over the weekend and some rain last night and the snow melted….but we can’t put away our boots yet – more snow predicted for tomorrow….and even some ice pellets. Winter is not done yet! We had our morning walk and in the sheltered areas it was nice but out in the open, the wind was quite cold.

Today’s card was made with a Just Rite poppy stamp.

This one was coloured with a combination of alcohol markers and Prsimacolor pencils. Do you see those small black bits that look like pollen? This was a boo boo that I ended up liking. I had added Wink of Stella to the flowers and set it aside. Then I decided to add tiny black glitter to the inside of the flowers so I dabbed on a bit of glue and added the glitter – but it stuck all over the flowers....they weren't quite dry yet. AAAGGGHH. I thought I had ruined it but I grabbed a cloth and wiped it across the card and most of the black glitter came off. But some seemed to stick a bit and I decided it looked like pollen that had been released. I left it alone and decided not to risk damaging the paper by removing more.

The white background was die cut with a Spellbinder’s fancy rectangle die. The ribbon was from my stash. The small tag was also a Spellbinder’s die but from a different set and the edges were inked with orange ink. The sentiment is a peel-of. The orange paper was also from my stash and I used a Fiskar’s corner punch to decorate each corner before gluing it to the white card base. Then I decided it needed some pearls so tiny pearls were added.

That’s all for a cool, windy Monday,
