Just a Note
I have used the rectangle stitch dies again. The blue the next size up to the white layer. Placed at an angle and could just squeeze in my 'Just a Note' sentiment. No bling added as I think this flower is blingy itself. In real life the flower is so pretty as I have used the same paints and colours as I did for the first one. These paints as so creamy and beautiful to work with.
I know its very much the same but still beautiful to look at. I am now trying one in deep crimson colour with gold and love it just taking it slow.......
Adding this to The Daily Marker - 30 Day Colouring Challenge - Day 20
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - use your favourite technique or product - what can I say. I love watercoloring, I love Altenew Flowers stamps, I love Dies.
Hero Art - Tic Tac Toe Challenge June 1-30th - I went with the Embossing -Whte embossed the flower; Die cuts - both mats cut with the rectangle stitch die - Favourite colour - Blue.
On a personal note I am a wee bit behind as I am living at Mum and Dads now and only getting home on weekends. Mum isn't doing so well and her Alzheimer's is moving very quickly. Dad has dementia but is doing okay, not great but ok, mum not so much.
Its to hard to do a couple of days a week traveling from home (Sydney) to their place (Canberra) so its easier to be there all week to meet issues head on. I go home weekends to recharge, catch up with my DH, see the kids and their children. Elysha of course comes with me as she can't be on her own because of her disability but she stays with her sister in Canberra so thats a bit more exciting for her and easier for me.
Sooo card making has to be squashed in to a couple of hours when and if I can. Lots of time to colour just not always to make the final edition. which is a shame as there are some great challenges out there I would love to join in. Will have to do my best.....lol.....does that sound like a craft fanatic.....mmmm. I do believe its like having withdrawals cause I just can't fit everything in the car that I need and struggle to decide what I should take or leave behind. Will have to move mum and dad into storage soon so I have enough room for my stufffffff.
