I am back from vacation and glad to be home. As soon as I was able to spend some time in my craft room, I was able to make this card. I usually take a picture in the morning, as that is the best light for my camera. But today, we have a snow storm, and it is so white outside, I can't see the neighbors house. Feels like I am in a snow globe. Not easy to turn to thoughts of Spring, but after all, it is closer than ever before. I chose a new stamp set from Flourishes that I wanted to use, called Apple of my Eye. The apples were so fun to color with copics, as I continually try to improve my technique. I used GKD paper in navy and coordinating DP in gingham. I die cut kraft paper and then embossed it with Wicker Weave folder. I added white gel pen in the embossed areas for more texture. After fussy cutting out the image, I realized that I have a cut file for this image. I won't forget that step again. Then I added the word Apples stamped in red on real wood paper. This is the first time I have used my Wink of Stella glitter pen on the flowers, and I just love it. Ribbon on the bottom for a delicate touch.
I am entering this card in these challenges this week.
Good to be home and crafting again!
