Keep it Simple Sunday

Nothing makes me crankier than to finish an entire blog post and have it disappear upon hitting the publish button...sigh...So folks, this is the abbreviated version! :-) This is a card that I'm going to be demonstrating this week at a coloring class I'll be teaching at Wholly Scrap. We'll create cards using Copic markers, watercolor crayons, pencils, and chalks. This is a lovely flower from Hero Arts, the Blossoms set, that was colored with Copics. The background was created by stamping a solid image, in dark brown ink, onto kraft cardstock. I then used a blending tool and distress ink to add more depth around the edges. I really like the way the bright color of the flower contrasts with the dark background. A simple hello, stamped on twill, finished off my card! Enjoy!! PS - It was my "baby's" sixth birthday this weekend...how in the world did six years go by so quickly?? And how did he get so darn cute?? See his little friend next to him? She was born just two weeks before he was...closer to his due date than hers! My dear friend, her mom, and I were pregnant at the same time, for both of our children so now our kid's birthdays are just weeks apart. Love that...
