Good morning, Peeps!
Wow, am I a bit late to wish you a Happy New Year, seeing as it's now MARCH! Erm, this is my first visit to my blog this year! I've been slack in that department, although I have been visiting blogs to see and read all about your crafty yumminess!
Anyhoo...I decided to POST a card I created last night - apologises though for my rubbish photo - it certainly has not captured the brightness of the finished card. I was playing with die-cutting, trying to get ahead of myself by diecutting a batch of my word dies, one of which, was Mama Elephant's Happy word die. As I was poking the negative parts out from the word I had the idea of trying to make something with the 'bit's - so after paying around I came up with this little creation. I had such fun! The rain drops. flower, stem, leaves & butterfly/bug (whatever YOU think it looks like-hehe) were all from the HAPPY word die! To spice it all up, I used Tim Holtz distress inks to colour and shade plus the background of my panel - which incidentally, was used on the shiny side of Centura Pearl card stock.
