It appears that I'm on a polka dot kick these days since several of the last cards I've made use a background paper with polka dots. It wasn't intentional but it sure is looking speckled around my blog! :-)
I was cleaning off and putting away things around my workspace and I found another image I'd stamped and colored ages ago but never mounted on a card. Well...so much for tidying up in my stamp studio. Today's MojoMonday #16 sketch over at Julee's blog POETIC ARTISTRY helped me get the image onto the card. Here is Julee's sketch for today:
This stamp is a fairly new one for me. I've used it before but I don't get tired of it. It is one of Heather's Stamping Haven, here in Ottawa original stamp designs. You know you can check out her shop site by clicking on HERE to see more about her shop and for information to order online.
I painted the image with twinkling H2O's. Then I added some machine stitching, ric-rac, buttons and flowers.
As much as I love making Christmas cards I must admit that this was a fun change of pace today to make something with barefoot girls and wild flowers. As I sit in front of my window I'm looking out at three feet of snow! YES! I said three feet. We just braved the largest stnowfall in a 24 hour period yesterday. That was on top of the foot+ we already had on the ground so we have lots of snow and barefoot, flower filled days appear to be a long way off.
