Health Pause

Just a note to say thank you to the CAS Mix Up Capture d_écran 2017-09-03 à 13.38.42Design Team for their encouraging support.  It’s been a while since my last post and I promise I’ll most likely be back in November after my “health pause”.  Family is the most precious jewel we have and my time belongs with them right now.

Using the Criss Cross Die from Papersmooches, I die cut a piece of left over scrap from the July Tissue Paper CAS Mix up Challenge as my background.  Daniel Smith’s “Iridescent Gold” luminescent watercolour was applied as a wash over a piece of Strathmore watercolour paper.  This piece was die cut using the largest square duo from Nellie Snellen’s Multi-Frame Die Set- Photo Frames.  The vellum hydrangea petals from SSS dies were cut and threaded together using a gold bead for the stigma.  A Technique Tuesday stamp was white heat embossed on a piece of black cardstock… “even miracles take a little time” 😉

On that note I say “Au revoir” (until we see each other again) and may your hearts be blessed.  Thanks so much for stopping by, warm hugs
