Happy Thoughts

Happy thoughts are coming your way!

It is a dull day in my part of town today, so a happy colour filled card is in order.  

For my background I first die cut the stitched rectangle, then die cut the piece again using the next die down. I then embossed that piece with the swirly embossing folder and sponged on the green, before putting together and attaching to my card base. For my card, I stamped the teacup and sauce using pink ink, the leaves using the greens and the flower using black ink on watercolour paper, and proceeded to colour using my Zig brushes. Once finished I die cut the pieces and arranged on my card. I styled the flower before attaching on foam dots. I stamped the sentiment in the black and die cut using a label die.

The Zig colours I used for the flower and teacup/saucer are yellow, light carmine, pink, light violet and shadow mauve. I stamped the teacup and saucer using Simon Says Stamp Pale Blush Pink, and Intense Black for the flower and sentiment. On the leaves I used Altenew bamboo, olive and parrot. I sponged my background using the bamboo colour.

Thanks so much for visiting today ... see you 
next time.
