Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
Color Hues is having a special challenge this time in honor of their friend Lindsey who
lost her battle with ovarian cancer last year. Lindsey's favorite colors were red and purple
so they are colors Color Hues are calling for.
I used a NBUS leaf stamp from Altenew, stamped on hot press watercolor paper. A damp
waterbrush smoothed out the color. Then I lightly spritzed the stamp and stamped
again a little above and to the side of the original stamping. The left over ink was
just enough to add a shadow.
The birdhouse was cut from a tiny piece of purple cardstock. I inked the edges and circle
with matching ink to add some depth.
I added a foil leaf and some chunky embossing to tie in with the embossed sentiment.
You can see the shine better here...
I didn't know Lindsey but I wish I had.
Her friends have so many nice things to say about her.
