Sunday Stampers - Week 215 - More Than Words

Welcome to summer everyone! Let's hope it lasts & doesn't the sun make you feel so much better. This is my favourite time of the year with nearly six weeks holiday & catching up to do...
Hels Sheridan has chosen words, or at least more than one for her Sunday Stampers theme this week & as usual has made a beautiful piece. Always an inspiration & great to see her on C&C this week.

I have made this quite simple card with scattered straw, barn door & peeled paint DI blended together over some white card. I inked up some large bubble wrap with white  paint & green ink & gently squished over the inked area then stamped the butterfly & grasses (TH), bullrushes (Craftwork Cards) & sentiment (PaperArtsy). I then spritzed with heirloom gold Perfect Pearls to give a nice shimmer & added some Ranger Stickles in Platinum to the grasses. I wrapped some cream ribbon to the bottom & added an old brass brad. I bought a mega bundle of really lovely antique brads, quite large from QVC about six years ago & am still using them!  One of my better buys. Lastly I mounted the card onto some black card & adhered to my DL Craftwork Card.

Quick & brief blog this week as I am off for a couple of days with my husband for some 'us' time as no real holiday this year. I have madly agreed for my 18 year old son to have a party whilst we are away - a weak moment!! Take care everyone. Sx
