Welcome back to my blog! It has been a while since I have posted, but I have been busy. I moved my craft room from an upstairs bedroom into my converted dining room. I am still getting settled but I really like being closer to the "heart" of the house, rather than stuck in a far away bedroom. It is also fun to be able to invite friends over to craft and have enough room for everyone! I will be doing a new craft room tour as soon as I am a little more settled. I have also been working on making some jewelry that I will share about in a future post. Stay tuned!
I used the Tim Holtz Watering Can die and the Wallflower Paper Stash.
While I was waiting for the grout to dry, I cut out some florals using the Tiny Tattered Florals dies.
I colored the flowers with some orange and yellow distress ink.
While the flowers were drying, I added the paper "tiles" to my Watering Can die cut.
For the background, I used Distress Woodgrain cardstock. I applied some Picket Fence Distress paint to my craft sheet and rolled my mini brayer through the paint. Unfortunately, I had some ink left over on my craft sheet (always clean your craft sheet after inking!) so the paint was a little tinted when I applied it on my cardstock. It was really not noticeable in the end so I didn't get too worried about it.
When the paint dried, I added a little Distress Stain.
When everything was dry, I assembled my card, using a Simon Says Stamp "Mom" die and a phrase from a Tim Holtz Chit Chat pad.
I chose to make a Mother's Day card.
Thank you for visiting!
