This card created by Tami Harley was featured on the Hero Arts blog today. You can check out the post here.
I was instantly inspired to make something similar, but instead of a card I did a page in my art journal. I already had a page gessoed and had decoupaged wrinkly tissue on it so my background was ready to go.
I don't have any of the stamps that were used, so I substituted what I did have. The background was painted with blue and green acrylic paints and overstamped randomly with a text stamp. I loosely painted a flower with white and red paints and then stamped a Claudine Hellmuth flower over the paints. I stamped the leaves from the same set onto dark green cardstock, cut them out and glued them to the background, drawing in a stem. I punched a yellow circle from cardstock and glued it to the center of the flower and added a button. The sentiment is an old clear stamp that I stamped on white cardstock, inked and glued to background.
This was a quick and fun project for a very rainy, stormy day. Brightened my spirits!
