I do. It has been super cold lately-down around 0 (Fahrenheit) at night with about a foot of crusty snow on the ground. The days have been pretty nippy too-that cold Canadian wind, and the ocean humidity...Brrrr.
Oh yes, I knew this would happen eventually. We were lucky last year with hardly any snow but old man winter does show up eventually.
It was nice having a short week back to work after the holiday break but since I am still trying to get over my holiday ear/sinus infections, I am glad to have a weekend down to finish re-cooping.
The little bit of art I have been doing lately involves bright colors.
These flowers particularly cheer me up.
Images are from Flourishes Clear Stamps-BLOOMIN' AUSSIE FLORALS.
. I colored with Sharpies and then cut them out, did some layering on the bottom flower and then added a bit of Stickles to the centers.
Here's a slightly crooked view of the whole card. I used a Quickutz embossing folder on brown paper bag paper to make the center piece and the just because came out pretty cool with a slightly 3D effect. This is also from a Flourishes stamp set-Inside and Out Just Because.
(Fun set- this phrase is large and then there is lots of choices to complete the idea.)
To make this I started by stamping and embossing the words in pink embossing powder. Then I used my finger and rubbed some light brown ink over it, then some dark pink ink to color the whole area to give it some extra depth. Then I took a white pen and outlined the words.
Finally, I stamped little matching pink ink dots on the background card stock and added a bit of contrasting ribbon and some Viva white paint pen dots.
So any big Saturday or weekend plans? Not me. Still in take it slow mode-but think today I need to run errands.
So exciting, eh?
Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by.
