I sat her last night staring at all the stamps, trying hard to motivate myself to make a card. Normally not that difficult but lately, a real effort. You see I was recently let go from my job of 18 and half years. My boss it seems sold the business (after assuring us he was not going to do this). At 60, with only two years from our retirement I was both shocked and upset. After all he had told me I had nothing to worry about.
So I have had to really push myself to create, as i have been in a fog of "what do I do now?" for the last three weeks. Well after watching countless you tube videos, hemming and hawing, taking sets out and putting them back, I chose to play with the Ranunculus set from Simon Says Stamp.
I have been in love with the whole watercolor play for years. I enjoy it even more that coloring. Of course it allows me brush time which I haven't been able to enjoy for some time. I am hoping to get my kiln hooked up so I can start painting china again soon.
I used inexpensive watercolor paper, embossed the flowers and cut them out. I mounted them on a piece of paper from paper studio and added some glitter (love glitter) and a few sequin flowers. What a nice way to say to someone how much you admire them.
