Have been enjoying playing around with my Stampin' Around Wheel ® Bloomin'. Have been doing some 'colouring in' using my ink pads. Give the ink pad a squeeze before opening it then use an aquapainter or brush to paint! Here are some quite quick and simple cards I made last night.
Those of you who have been to my place might be wondering where that rose came from? Yes our yard is still officially a disaster zone but we have managed to keep our balcony plants kicking along while we wait for our retaining wall to get going so we can get a garden happening. The rose came from Kristin and Steven Christmas 06 and is still alive and even flowering! Smells gorgeous. Thank you rose for being my prop for the day while I have a bit of an arty farty photographer phase!
The cards use Whisper White, Bravo Burgundy, Brocade Blue, Perfect Plum and Sahara Sand.
The greeting is my trusty much used - Sincere Salutations.
Another quick (my specialty at the moment) card using In Full Bloom - the stamp set that coordinates with Bloomin' wheel.
Here is a close up of the flower from another card - which was done using the aquapainter and ink pad method described above.
Colours: Always Artichoke, Perfect Plum and Basic Black.
I have just added a photo album to this ever expanding blog. You can find it down the left column. (Getting very busy these days in that left column! Don't get lost.) If you click on 'Family Snaps' you will plonk straight to the album with a page of thumbnails (little photos.) Click on any of the thumbnails to see the larger version. Once I've got a collection of card photos happening I'll add a card album as well but that might do for today or we will have no clothes to wear .... yep still haven't done much with that laundry!
