Another glorious day in the mountains. The weather is so strange at the moment. We have a high of 22 today and tomorrow it goes back down to 10! Mountain weather….love it! It is too nice to be indoors today so I want to get out and catch up with some work in the garden. Desperately behind with the early Spring clean up.
Anyway, back to crafting. Another quick post today. I do apologize for the erratic posting on the blog at the moment. It seems to be either all or nothing.
This is today’s little project. A little wrap card.
and for the inside
To make this
I stamped the flowers onto a piece of heavy weight water colour paper using a permanent brown ink and trimmed it so size and trimmed around the outside edge of the stamped flower image. When the ink was dry, I placed some yellow and peach coloured distress ink onto an acrylic block, spritzed it with water and swished the paper around, picking up the diluted ink and waiting for the ink to dry on one side, before I coloured the other.
I coloured the flowers with the same colours of distress ink using a paint brush.
I then scored the card as shown.
I stamped the text image onto a separate piece of pretty paper, attached this to the base card and added the star.
I attached a little button, with string threaded through it, to the front of the wrap using heavy duty gel medium. Strong glue or silicon would work as well.
That’s about it really.

Take care and have a lovely weekend.
