I love the sentiment 'Flowers whisper what words cannot say'. I think its so true. I white embossed the flower stamps. I have used a combination of two stamp sets as I wanted small flowers as well as the main large one. Will post the name if anyone is interested.
Okay embossed on watercolour cardstock. Bit of masking involved. Then I watercolored with my Peerless Watercolours, very soft to begin with and then built up the colour. Then I found I had this empty spot between the big flowers where the embossing powder had not taken. I used a white gel pen and finished off the petals but still had a blank area so decided to add some green.
Then I took the green around the bottom of the flowers and changed to a washy blue green on top but then felt I had ruined the image with too much green in the left corner.
I washed out as much as I could but then felt leave it alone. I decided to cut it down slightly by using the stitched die then decided to do my wonky layout with purple layer and green card base.
I hope this still fits within this challenge
I'm sure the flowers do and hope that since I used purple and green cardstock and both of those are present in the photo its okay. If not my apologises and please delete.
Just thought should add this to the NBUS Challenge as the flowers both belong to yes 'stamp sets that I have not used before'.
Was just thinking I should share this at the Time out Challenge #39 Make your mark
I have watercolored so I have made my mark.
Mum and dad and a sheep or three.
I'm going to digress here as I just want to share to those who are aware of what is happening with mum and dad.Mum and dad as many of you know are battling dementia and Alzheimers. Mum has Alzheimer's, it was progressing very rapidly, was aware of what was happening and life was looking terrible. Mum is now on a medication that has slowed the progress and even given back a little of what had been lost. This has meant that I don't need to live there five days a week now and I just stay two days and stay home five days unless something urgent comes up. If need be I can travel there in two hours.
Dad has progressed to the stage that all his thoughts and conversations are on the past and some stroppy behaviour, often behaving more like a spoilt child than an adult but overall life is mostly better.
I ring a few times day to see how things are and this morning mum sounded so down cause dad was just being rotten so when I got off the phone I decided to order some flowers for mum. I felt the words used in the sentiment above are so relevant, I just wanted mum to know I am always thinking of her and love her. She rang after lunch and sounded like a different person.
And now to share a funny moment. I had a visitor this morning or I should say three. We back onto a bit of farmland. Three sheep decided to come visit, coming through our neighbours yard. Elysha was signing at me 'sheep at the door' 'sheep at the door' Jake is barking and I look out the front and there's a sheep at the door. I grabbed the camera and went to the door and it had moved to the driveway so I stepped out to take a shot.
Exciting morning hey!!.
Well thanks for visiting and hope you come again.
