Everything Will Be Okay

Hi friends! How you holding up? Yesterday I did a little stamping therapy, taking on the Hero Arts Stay Crafty challenge #1.  I already had the Affirmation Messages set sitting on my desk because I wanted to use it, and it totally fit the challenge of making an encouragement card.

I started with the background, wanting to use some happy sunny colors, so I blended squeezed lemonade, dried marigold, ripe persimmon, and tattered rose, then spritzed with water for that oxidized effect.  Next I stamped the sentiment in black.  I used a white prismacolor pencil to color over the flowers, leaves, and accents until the background color was covered up. Then I added more color with prismacolor pencils and coated the flowers with a bit of crystal clear lacquer and a pinch of glitter.  I popped this panel up on a foam sheet then accented with rhinestones and a seam binding bow to finish things off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have someone in your household who can give you a squeeze and let you know that everything will be okay in this time of uncertainty. If not, I'm sending a virtual hug your way! If you feel like crafting, be sure to check out the Stay Crafty with Hero Arts Challenge.
