Hot, Hot Spring Day

The weather has been absolutely scorching. Yesterday it was in the 90's and today it hit 90 again! I am ever so thankful that we have air conditioning in our home. This will be a very short post because this heat has just worn me out, and I've had quite a day.

You're probably very tired of hearing me rave about the Pen and Ink stamps by Josephine Kimberling. But I'm not tired of using the stamps, over and over and over again. I needed to make a birthday card very quickly; of course, I reached for the Peony stamp.

The only part that took the longest was making a mask of the stamp design. I stamped the pink image first; put the mask on it and stamped the yellow, followed by the red. With colored pencils, I colored in the stamens. The sentiment was added.

I had a scrap piece of gloss paper that I had I had colored with alcohol inks. Luckily, it fit as a frame mat. That was then adhered to the A2 card base.

A droplet in each color was attached.

On the Magenta blog, Carole Dion has created this beautiful card. I think the green and white color combination is so refreshing and clean looking.
