Dust it off Sunday! First.. I dusted off my blog for Spring. Just a few quick changes nothing fancy... but for some reason just a little pink and new font make me feel like I did a bit of Spring cleaning - and makes me smile. I do love the pink too!
For today's post I decided to make a card with one of the images that I had "practiced" with my new Letraset Aqua-Markers. I am LOVING these new markers BTW... they are just too fun. I just need to work with not being so heavy handed with the ink... and try a little less ink and water - trying.. but I do love the color!
Ok, so I had to do some serious surfing on the web to find out what this image was... LOL it has been in my stack of images forever - but I finally got to High Hopes and went.. duh I knew that was what it was! She is actually called "Valerie Nurse Angel" I think she is just an adorable get well image. Since I had colored with no papers in mind, I had to really dig through my papers to find something that went with this one. purple and browns? Not a color combo I do often! But then I found the paper stack from K&Company and Brenda Walton "Brookfield" - and the papers seemed just perfect for a simple calm get well card. I matted with a cream colored card stock, and sewed down everything. A pretty satin ribbon, and then LOTS and LOTS of adhesive pearls! The tab and the sentiment were part of the stack - so that worked out well for a quick card.
So have you dusted off an old image lately? Let me see it! Comment and give me a link so I can visit you! Those old images need some love and ink too :0)
Off to enjoy the day with Hubby -
Hi Michelle, what a beautiful card you made. I have only start colouring stamps a few months ago, so not really old images which need to be dusted off at my side yet, only new ones which need to be inked, but I am trying. If you like to come over and take a peek you're welcome at http://creamieke.blogspot.com
Hope you enjoyed your day with your hubby. Regards
