ABNH #44

Welcome back!

I am playing for A Blog Name Hero challenge #44 - use embossing wet or dry.




I was inspired by Lisa's method of creating wonderful background using daubers!  You can see her beautiful card (and instructions to create it) in this post on the Hero Arts Blog.  I used my Neon daubers to add colours to the background after I white heat embossed the Hero Arts Birthday Blackboard on watercolour paper.  Then I trim it and adhered to hot pink CS and mount on white card base.  And I embellished with a couple straws from the SSS March card kit 2013 edition (yes I've save kept that for over a year!) and some pearls by Doodlebug.  Although it does not show thru the photo, it's quite vibrant in real life. 

Thanks for stopping.

Lady's slipper

Hi everyone:

Today I don't have a card to share but a photo of my Lady Slipper, it's flowering again!!  Yay!!  It's been more than two years it has not flower, so I am really happy to see it bloom again!

I hope you enjoy it.

 

 
 
And while I am at it, I may as well share a couple photos of my Tulips and Lilies of the Valley!
Thanks for stopping by!!  Enjoy the rest of the day!
