Take The Time To Do Nothing.

lördag 3 mars 2012

Hello and happy Saturday everyone!
Thank you for stopping by to see my latest project.
I usually play music while I sit and do my cards, and this time I listened to Sinead O'Connor – Nothing Compares 2 U so I might say that she and her ballad has inspired me to this card.

The blue background, I made by first painting with blue and white acrylic paint. Then I took Distress Crackle Paint - Rock Candy just because it was closest, and laid on a layer, and before it dried I pressed the Tim Holtz Tissue Paper on top.
Then I stamped with Decorative Lamp from Kaiser Kraft and clear embossed it.
I painted the image a bit with Copics and the chimney got Diamond Stickles.

The sentiment from Roxstamp was cut out by hand, the flowers were also painted with Copics.
The large flower, I made by a piece of fabric and some decoration band. In the middle I placed a Jewel Center from Petaloo. The other papers I used are from Papirdesign.

Have a fabulous weekend, and thank´s again for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
