How things can change in a day. Yesterday we had four inches of snow and today, it is basically all gone as it poured rain all through the night and it is up to 7C (46F) already. Gotta love West Coast snowfalls: here today, gone tomorrow!
I had two ideas in mind when I first saw this sketch, one being a focal sentiment and the other a focal floral (try saying that a few times quickly LOL!). As you can see, the focal floral won out. This Penny Black image has been a long time favorite of mine and I never tire of using it. I decided to go with Black, River Rock and Cream because I wanted to stamp the flower image in black, and this lovely colour combination worked like a charm. I used my Nesties for the ovals and had to stamp my main image a few times because it isn't easy to get a good image on linen paper due to the texture it has. However, after really inking up my stamp, attempt number three was successful LOL! I used Itty Bitty Backgrounds for the River Rock panels for a subtle pattern as I didn't want to take away from the main image. Wrapped things up (no pun intended LOL) with some sheer black ribbon and a sentiment.
Hope you are closer to being ready for Christmas :D Have a fabulous day!
