Hello my friends! I hope the weather is warmer where you are, because we are dealing with some seriously cold temperatures here in Utah. Not fun, but a girl has to stay warm, and what a better way than to play in my craft room out of the cold? Let’s get to today’s inspiration for some new and fun projects that are sure to warm your heart! I hope these will inspire you and you will have fun creating some of your own.
This beautiful card, designed by the very talented Amy Sheffer, is a great way to send some hugs through the mail. Amy always brings her cards to life with beautiful, soft water coloring. I love they way that it complements the beautiful flowers. Who wouldn’t feel the love with this perfect message of hope and encouragement?
Amy used the stamp Fresh Bouquet along with a combination of Papertrey inks and Zig clean color brush markers. Stamps are always a great way to create your own images to color. You can outline the image and add your own pop of color using your favorite coloring technique. Thank you, Amy, for always being a great inspiration. To see more of Amy’s designs, let me take you over to her blog Pickled Paper Designs. You are sure to leave inspired to start your next project.
