Morning all!!
Thank you for your lovely messages on my last post.

With the sadness of the last few weeks, within my circle
of friends and family, your messages were kind and uplifting.

I just thank goodness for having the best hobby you can have!!
You can make things, that make you smile and not all Sympathy cards.

This project made me smile for the days it took to make!!

What isn't visible, is that her face and ears are 3D.
I stamped and coloured her head twice.
The flowers and leaves are all die cuts.

Now tell me, she certainly makes you smile!!! 
Or, Are You Having A Giraffe!!!Lol!!

Sorry, just had to add that quip!!

To colour her and the flowers, I used a palette of water colours, 
that I bought in Hobbycraft. 
They were half price, so I had to have them!! (Rude not to!!)

I used Langton Smooth Water Colour pad, that I 
also bought in Hobbycraft. I then mounted it onto a canvas.
Guess where I bought the canvas?!!!!

I edged the card with TH Distress Oxide, Faded Jeans.

Hope you are enjoying the sunshine. It certainly lifts you
mentally and physically, pottering in the garden.

Stay home and keep safe.

Big hugs,

Pretty Purple

Hope you are all staying safe and healthy!

I fancied to use some vellum for a change. 
I hadn't realized just how much I had......a whole drawer full!!
So I used it for the stamped flowers, which are from 
Honey Doo and used Wow white embossing powder.
Coloured on the back of the flowers and leaves with Copics.

The background on the left is also vellum,
 that I had stamped many years ago, using Stazon ink!!!

In fact I had loads of A4 pieces stamped with 
different colours and stamps! Ooops!!

I hope this is all going to go away before the Summer. 
My son is getting married on the 4th September and
we don't want to have that date changed.

I was trying to get down to a size 12 before then, but
I am not getting the exercise I should be!!
So I might have to stick with being size 14!!Lol!!

Well enjoy the sunshine while it is with us.

Big hugs,
