Having a very busy summer here in Southern CA.  We had to drive down to San Ysidro (right on the Mexican border) last weekend to get our Global Entry passes, working more than usual and in general, just busy! I have been working on this card over the last few days, coloring at night while watching TV and then slowly assembling.  I stamped and colored with copics some of the flowers from the Honey Bee Stamps Country Blooms, and colored the background with copics and applied texture using a bit of towel and blender solution. I used a craft knife to cut an irregular window and tried to cut a similar window out of the teal card stock (somewhat unsuccessfully).  I applied two additional fussy cut flowers to overlap the cutout and stamped my sentiment on the inside of the card.  The card looked fine but I decided to throw on some sequins on three sides of the card.  If you like it let me know as comments let me know that there is someone out there.

  1. There is, most definitely, someone out here. Someone who recently got on Instagram to follow a couple of crafters, found Honey Bee, came home tonight after a weekend spent visiting family, decided to have a quick peek at some loveliness on Instagram and immediately found herself gazing intently at your gorgeous card. The colors, the cutout, the colors, the texture...oh my. I have only basic coloring skills, but when I look at pieces such as this, I want to work at it more. May all my coloring dreams come true. You inspire, and I say Thank You.

  2. OMG Lola, that is the sweetest, nicest comment. Thank you so much for taking the time to post your comment and I hope to see your work on Instagram sometime soon.
