It's a Heat-Wave and a Card

We’re having a heat-wave! Well, after all the bitter cold weather and mounds of snow and freezing rain we’ve had, today feels like a heat-wave. It’s well above freezing so a lot of the snow is starting to melt….but a little slower than normal because of the ice on top of it.

I needed some thinking of you cards so here’s one I recently made. Orange poppies are one of my favourite flowers. This image was a free digi print from the Internet.

It was coloured with pencils and blended with gamsol but I got a little heavy handed with the dark orange which took away a lot of the yellow/orange but that’s okay. I still liked it. I sponged some yellow and blue chalk around it while it was still in the Spellbinder’s long rectangle die so it left a nice white image. All the rest of the paper is from the stash. The butterfly is from a Memory Box die. The peel-off sentiment is on a piece of scrap paper left over from cutting the card background. It is placed behind that label…which started out pink. I won a set of these labels that were all yucky colours that I knew I would never use. So, the solution was to alter them with alcohol ink. I just kept sponging on colours until I got that nice marbled look and quit. Now I love them and I’m glad I won them…and now I’ll use them.

That’s all for a very snow melting mild Wednesday, February 14, 2018….Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! We don’t buy each other presents anymore but we did have lunch out today after walking at the arena.
