I colored the image with water color pencils and highlighted a smidge with colored pencils. You may not be able to see it too well, but the cat's sunglasses, the lemonade and the waves all have Accent Glaze on them. And those little fish in the corners, well they are actually little fish skeletons!! They just don't show up very well. But I thought considering the sentiment from Whipper Snapper, skeleton fish were very appropriate!!
Thanks again for stopping by and take some time to find something to laugh about this weekend. It will do your heart some good!!
So when I made this card a while back I had no idea what it would mean to me when I pulled it out to use it. There it stood, one lone little yellow tulip on a simple card I intended to use for a birthday. The Lord speaks to us and reminds us of things in some amazing ways, even through our stamping.
The background is done with the Cuttle Bug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I stamped the image with Stazon and water colored it. The pearls on the side are some brads I found in a clearance bin and have been saving to use on just the right projects. I think they worked.
The dear sweet 83 year old lady I gave the card to was thrilled to receive it. I was blessed by her reaction when she opened it. She has shown it around and around. How sweet!!
I am so thankful that I can be reminded of a very basic fact, I am never alone. Never!! I hope you can say that and mean it. Thanks for stopping by.
