Do you ever make a card for a friend just because….I was asked to participate in a R.A.K . For those who don’t know what this is it stands for Random Act Of Kindness. A lovely lady I chat to on Facebook and I have also had the pleasure of meeting is Doreen Sympson. So on my travels one day a spied a small card easel which I thought would be a good little thing to send light useful and small enough to pop into a Padded envelope ….. Ideal so now needed a card to go with it. I decided to make a bright and cheery easel card to match it!
I chose the Sunflower set to help banish the winter blues. And a sentiment from the Sunny day Greetings the other sentiment on the topper is from Friends Sentiments ….Small Butterflies are from the Butterfly set.
Stamped then with Versafine onyx black the quickly heat embossed in clear embossing powder. ….This allows me to use pro-markers to colour the images without the ink bleeding….the colours used for the sunflowers were lemon, summer sun , and sunflower,and the greens are Apple Cider. Pear Green and Lime Twist.the Blue is Tumbled Glass distress ink with my home made cloud mask ( I cover how to make this in a previous post) and the green ink was Bundled Sage Distress ink which you can buy from Hobby Art the black line at the back of the sunflowers is draw in with a Black pro-marker using a fine nib….Well I hope you enjoy looking at this card and much as I enjoyed making it for Doreen …..go on you don’t need a reason to tell someone you are thinking of them make one …..Just because.
