Tonight when I go into work I'll work my last shift. Over ten years I've sat at that desk, worked with those exceptional men and women. Am I sad? Sad doesn't seem to cover it. I want to cry just thinking about it. I know God's plan is better than mine. I know God is closing the door on this chapter of my life. I'm going to go his way. I just might cry a little as I do it. I know this isn't a particularly happy subject but this is my life. And right now, this part of my life is sad.
Now that I've got you all melancholy let's talk cards.
I'm playing along with Fusion Card Challenge. For some reason I can never, ever, ever, use the sketch. And I LOVE sketches. There is just something about the inspiration photos lately that are sucking me in.
Oh, you know what it is?
Yeah . . .I admit it. It's the flowers.
Aren't they the prettiest little bunch?
I immediately thought on the flowers from Hero Arts and Basic Grey called Sunshine.
I stamped the grouping of flowers across the top of my card and then colored them with copics. I CAN'T STOP USING THEM!!! or watching videos about them . . .or being fascinated at how people use them . . .I may need an intervention soon!
For the background I used the lightest BG color (BG0000) and used it to pick up some color from the tip of YG03. I laid i down using small circles. It created the coolest (at least I think it's cool) background of the two colors.
The Hello is from Simon Says Stamp. I die cut the flower panel with it and also a piece of blue violet. I adhered them to a white card base fitted into one another. Originally my game plan was to try another die cutting technique but in the end I liked this better. I dotted the flowers with stardust stickles.
