Grey, Sunny, Wet ...

... this just about sums up today!! It also reflects my mood ... the only solution seemed to be getting creative.  After spending quite some time just gazing out of the window I did manage to tune in to my creative heart and make a couple of cards.  As always the TIME OUT challenge provided me with inspiration - so this is the first card of the day: 

The image, the background and sentiment were stamped and then heat embossed.  I water coloured the stamped images and then fussy cut the flower as I wanted to use it to add dimension to the card (and realistically I was too lazy to mask and stamp it all!!).

I used:
Visible Image - Creative Chaos
STAMPlorations - Softly
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
WOW Clear Embossing Powder
Ecoline Brush Pens

The challenge details

I've already started working on my garden (rather than waiting for April) as it sure does help 'get me out of my head' the only problem is that it is dependent on the weather!!

I'm also going to enter the current challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More #401

Stay Safe!


  1. I am so pleased Elaine our challenge inspired you when you felt a little down and well you would never know with this stunning card. I love the fresh yellow background and like the combo of stamps you used here. I am so with you on the masking side! But heh, I probably would have been too lazy to fussy cut too!! The colour is perfect to match the background and the placement of the flower is also just right. Thanks for joining Time Out x

  2. Simply beautiful your gorgeous flower and amazing background! Thank you so much for playing along with us at Time Out!
