Post 218: Floral Thanks Card

Hi friends :)

Hope you are having a good start to the weekend. I have spent most of my time crafting for the past couple of days. My desk and shelves have become messy because of all the projects. I will have to take the time to clear everything and sort through things so everything is better organized. A clean space helps me feel uncluttered and motivated to create. But I must admit, the cleaning and organizing part is difficult, time consuming and soo tiring! (therefore, I avoid it as long as possible). Ah well, you gotta do what you gotta do, eh? Also, I have a small crafty giveaway running through the month of July with 2 prizes on offer. Its open world-wide. In case, you are interested, all the details are here

Today, I'd like to share a Clean and Simple Floral card. This is a side folding 5 by 7 inch card. I stamped the script background on the oval panel (watercolor paper) with yellow archival ink with a Hero Arts stamp and then stamped some butterflies. (I wanted the tone on tone look with a bit of interest with respect to the scripty background.) Then I created a yellow water color wash using an aqua brush and zig markers. Then stamped the floral images from a Winnie & Walter stamp set. The sentiment is stamped on labels which were water colored in hues of pink and blue. Finished off the card with a few blue crystals. 

List of Supplies:

Hero Arts Wood Mounted Stamp- Artistic Butterflies 
Hero Arts Wood Mounted Stamp- (Background french script)
Hero Arts Clear Stamp- Month August (Sentiment)
Winnie & Walter Stamp-In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya (flowers)
