Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Our Education In Creation Is Never-Ending
I sometimes volunteer at a Boys & Girls Club, helping children experience creating art! It is a joy and an energizer for me! As I watch the children create and reflect on my own experiences with creating art, I realize that our personal school of art is never-ending. Every day you sit down to create or think about creating you are moving further into your birthright as a creative being. There are new thoughts to express and new ways to express them. Dig deep, there is still so much to learn!
For today's card I combined the Mostly Vintage decor stencil with some Vanilla Shimmer smooch spritz. If you look closely you can see the outline of the stencil! It is wonderfully sparkly in person! I then stamped some of the flowers from Vintage Vogue around the edges in Whisper White craft ink. And yes, I used my heat tool to dry things since I am a bit impatient ;) I built the flower with elements from the Pretties Kit...but look closely...I also embossed on some white grosgrain ribbon. I stamped the floral image in Versamark onto the ribbon and then embossed using silver embossing powder! I stamped the greeting on Whisper White card stock and added some dazzling diamonds along the edges. A few half-pearls finish the look. I hope you like it!
