todays make

 Hello fellow bloggers! The weather is no better today - more like autumn/winter than spring. Hubby back at work today so once had done my few jobs settled down to do some crafting - lovely!
Today's word over on One Word Wonder is kids.
I stamped the image, from Jayne Nestorenko's Apple of my Eye Collection, onto white card. Made a mask & stamped the flowers, making it look as if the flowers are in front of the children.
Coloured the image with watercolours.
Found a die that framed the image, cut it out & distressed the edges with frayed burlap Distress Ink. Matted this onto yellow, green & red card. Stamped the sentiment, which is from the same stamp set, onto white card. Cut this out using another die, distressed the edges using barn door Distress Ink. Die cut a couple of flourishes with a Memory Box die which has the name of Donnington Tendril.
Adhered the flourishes & sentiment using a foam pad.
Hope you've had a good day, whatever you're doing. Thanks for stopping by.
