Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing the card I made for my DIL's birthday. I played with a new-to-me stencil from STAMPlorations. Love these butterflies --- they are so pretty! I'm heading over to STAMPlorations Anything Goes to join in the fun.
I started with a watercolour sprayed background from my stash. The stencil was taped over the card and versamark was press on top, and then heat embossed in white. I sponged more picked raspberry to deepen the colours of the background, then sprayed with a shimmer mist on top. This is very sparkly in real life, but hard to capture in a photo. A white embossed sentiment on black finishes the card.
We are away on vacation this week on beautiful Galiano Island. The weather was sunny and warm at the beginning of the week, but cool these last few days with rain on and off. Jer and Alex came over to spend the weekend with us. It's been lots of fun.
Included below is a picture of the four of us out on the deck at our rental house. We are on a highbank, looking at the Active Pass. Don't we look happy??!! :)
I'll also include a picture of the delicious breakfast (Chilaquiles) that Alex made for us this morning. It has a broth (tomato, onion, garlic and cilantro) poured over tortilla chips, with chorizo sausage, feta cheese, avocado ... with a poached egg on top. Yummy!! :)
Thanks for dropping by for a visit!
