A Poppy Card


The cool weather continues here with…yup, more rain and thunderstorms for the next few days. This Saturday, July 1, is Canada Day and it is even more special this year because it is our 150 anniversary! Lots of events are planned throughout the country but a lot of them around here are going to be rained out….which is a shame after all the work that goes into them.



In case you are wondering, yes I still have laryngitis – for three months now!!! – I have a weak voice, but a voice, some days but other days it’s not much more than a squeak….or not voice at all. The doctors are stumped so I’m waiting to see an ENT specialist.



Because of the cold and rainy weather I’ve spent more time in the lower studio (aka the basement) making cards and scrapbooking than I usually do in June. Here is one card that I made last week.




All the paper and ribbon are from the stash. The image itself was a free download I found on the Internet. It was coloured with pencils and blended with gamsol. Dark Stickles were added to the middle of the flower and Wink of Stella was spread on the flower and bud. The sky is chalk. The rectangles were die cut with the Elizabeth Craft Design stitched die set….love this set. Once the flower was coloured this was a pretty quick card to put together.



That’s all for a cool Wednesday, June 28, 2017.

Cheers

Violet
