I’m very happy to report that today I am feeling a bit better. Still not 100% but for the first time in about 3 weeks I do feel like there is an improvement. I managed to sneak in a few extra pancakes yesterday evening so I’m wondering if it might have been them that did the trick!
Today I have another project that I will be sharing over at Sunday Stampers challenge which is to use bright colours. I have maxed out on brightness, but the photographs are little more subdued than the reality.
Of late I have been craving a holiday in the sun, not to escape the winter, because I love it, with all inclusive pampering. My demands are not high – sun, palm trees and someone to bring me exotic cocktails on a regular basis. In my dreams there would be oodles of big tropical flowers in colours like these!
I managed to squeeze out some final droplets from my Dylusions inks to create the background, spritzing some colours through a variety of stencils. Whilst still wet, I also used some Picket Fence distress stains through the same stencils. This tends to take on some of the colour and create further tones.Once dry, I used Mowed Lawn distress ink to stamp butterflies all over. Using the green just adds an extra layer to the background. I used black ink and a stamp to create faux stitching all around the edge.
The flowers, all stamps by Sheena Douglass, were stamped on to white card and then coloured with distress inks.
I couldn’t resist including a little bit of monochrome, a trend I’m enjoying at the moment.
Looking at this I can almost smell the Pina Coladas!
Thanks for buzzing by.
