Purple Flower Card


I’m very tired after doing a bit of yard work this morning and I have a quilt guild meeting tonight. Time for some down time…aka a nap….before the meeting! The terrible heat and humidity finally broke and we have much more pleasant temperatures right now. In fact, we turned the A/C off a couple of days ago and opened the windows. Today is the only day without rain and/or a thunderstorm predicted so the yard work had to be done today.



I must have been in a purple mood when I sat down to colour some images because I have a stack of purple flowers coloured. Here is one of them. This was a free download from the Internet.




These were coloured with coloured pencils, blended with gamsol and then Wink of Stella was brushed on the flowers. Yellow Stickles was added to the centres. Blue chalk was sponged on around the flowers. I wanted to cut the image using the square Spellbinders die but it was a bit too small so I just cut around the one flower on the right and it works just fine. I rather like it sticking out like that. The scallop square was also die cut with a Spellbinders die. All the paper is from the stash.



That’s all for a sunny Wednesday, June 21, 2017.



Cheers
