"A meow massages the heart."
I just happened to have one with this beige cardstock and some peach paper that I had run through a crimper with a subtle star pattern on it. Yay!
I stamped the MFP Lily of the Valley image from the set of that same name in Memento London Fog ink on watercolor paper and painted it with my watercolors. I wanted to put a gray wash around the image so the white flowers would show, but I am afraid that gray didn't turn out as well as I wanted. I will keep practicing. :)
I put a bit a yellow paint in the middles of the individual flowers, but it didn't show up too well. I wanted more yellow for the challenge, anyway, so I used my yellow Sakura Glaze gel pen to make the centers more visible. Then I also added the little yellow rhinestones. Somehow, the flowers still weren't quite right, so I also added a bit of glitter gel pen to the centers. I like how they turned out. The sparkle echoes the little rhinestones...or is it the other way around??? Hopefully, you can see the shine in this angled photo.
Hope you liked this simple little card. Do you do "card starters" similar to what I described? What other things help you save time and use scraps???? Please tell me in your comments!
Have a lovely rest of the week!!!
