Hi everyone! I’m sure this Spring is finding you hustling to get stuff done! That’s the way it is here anyway. I think I told you that we lost 3 trees Nov. 6, 2107. They were in what the city calls their right a way, so they cut them down… Emerald Ash bore. Sob. So it’s been crazy trying to figure out and find replacement trees! We did it though and now have 3 new trees that we paid big bucks for in what they consider their property. sigh. oh well… gotta have trees! Shade!!! Cuz HOT is coming! lol
I did get some cards made to share here though! yay!
This one is using the new Memory Box Painted Flower Stems die... I went CAS (clean and simple) again… die cut in watercolor paper and used Zig Watercolor brush markers. Do you remember Memory Box Dave’s watercolor dip video? Thinking this die would be fun for that technique too! True, you could do this up a million ways! lol and for a lot of occasions!
I went with sympathy this time because I need to get some in my stash. The sentiment I used is from the poppystamps Peony Stems and Blossoms set. Love this set! I stamped it in the MISTI with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink. That’s my go to black right now.
Hobby Lobby watercolor paper for the cardbase and die cut. I just ink blended on some Distress ink in the background. I think it was Broken China. Then spattered on some of the watered down Zig color that I scribbled on my craft mat.
I did use the thin mounting tape that I link to below, to adhere the die cut. Placing it behind the flowers and the base.
