Savor Life


This is just for fun. I made this card fairly quickly(for me anyways).  After I finished I kept fighting the urge to pearlize, stickle it up, or add some more details. :)

I have had this Hero Arts poppy stamp sitting in my drawer and wanted to play for it for awhile. I finally pulled it out along with my wood grain and colored it with a water brush and some distress inks.

I hope you are having a lovely Monday!

    PS. Of course, you were right about the image I used the other day. It was Stampendous. I bought that and a Hero Arts one at the same time and got them mixed up when I posted. So glad you pointed it out Suzz, thanks. Xx
