Sugar Nellie's "Windswept"
Happy Wednesday everyone!
Well we are half way through the week and today I looked at the weather and thought what a perfect day to make my windswept card!!! Yes it's windy here, still hot but at least you get a little refreshment with the breeze. I spent most of my morning trying to locate my way through the splitcoast stampers site....I think I navigated through it ok, I just have to split my time (no pun intended!!) between the computer, designing and housework, otherwise my eyes will be sore by the end of the day.
I'm really happy with how this card turned out and think the colors work well together, don't you think?? The brightness of the orange paper actually brings out the color of the aqua paper. I colored the stamp in copics (I only have a few so my choices are limited!!), made the image 3D, added the stamped florishes from stampology using Marth Stewarts blue sky ink. I machine stitched both the inside and outside of the card and put the flower embellishment together using a pearl brad.
