Sending you sunshine...

I got my craft room totally cleaned yesterday and then sat and stared....which I have been doing quite a bit of lately! So tonight after dinner I got several things done, cleaned up around the house and during all of this a card popped into my head! So I went down and made this....

I adore this new sunflower set from PTI!  And of course that little picket fence.  You may not be able to tell but I actually made the fence one piece...sort of...I took (2) 1/4" strips of Kraft card stock and adhered them to make one big fence panel.  I did that after running all the pieces through with the woodgrain impression plate.  I love the texture it adds!

Behind the fence, I stamped some grass from the day dreamer set, just to add that touch of green.  I popped the fence up on foam tape, as well as both flowers and some of the leaves.  That cloud background is airbrushed using my Copic system.  I am sort of addicted to that right now.  I have made quite a few backgrounds lately with those Lil' Inker clouds!  That gorgeous ink for the flowers and the grass is all from Amuse.....LOVE!  I used 2 shades of yellow for the flowers, Papaya and Buttercup.  The centers are of the flowers are Amuse Pumpkin and the grass is, well, grass (the ink color)!  :)  All of these are a perfect match for my PTI cardstock....Orange Zest, Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold, Simply Chartreuse.

Not much is new here!  Just getting back into our school routine!  I am looking forward to getting some serious cleaning and purging done for my entire house!  We will see how that goes!  ;)

Hope to see you soon....crossing my fingers this little mojo stays intact!  hehe!

  8. I have been doing a lot of staring at my craft desk lately too. This card is beautiful! That fab sunshine impression plate is on it's way to me. My first PTI impression plate, I can't wait! I love it with the orange, and the fence is fab too! Woodgrain might have to be my next investment. Beautiful card Laurie! It really brightens the day.
