Hello sweet bloggers,
I haven't blogged for almost a week now - life seemed to have got in the way.
I will certainly come and visit you all in a bit.
Meanwhile here is my card to show you which I have made after a break. The background stamp is from Hero Arts and I have used TH Victorian velvet while the card stock has been sponged with TH peeled paint. The rose was painted directly on to water colour paper with Aleeza's Early Learning Centre water colours during our painting hour together. I went over it with a metallic gel crayon from Paper Chase - which makes it sparkle in real life. I cut out the rose and mounted it on foam tape to give it a raised appearance. The leaves have a story to tell - I found them abandoned by the poolside in our complex and the minute I saw them my heart wanted to bring them home. I seem to like this card and other moments not so am not quite sure but Aleeza certainly does like it and that makes me happy.
I will enter this card in the following challenges:
