Sending Hugs & Happy Thoughts


It's Anja here. Today's card was inspired by my feelings lately. There are days when I feel stuck at home like this fish in a bowl. But better days are ahead, I'm sure.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Goldfish & Bowl, Mom's Garden Bouquet),
- Distress Inks,
- craft card base (15x15 cm),
- silver pigment ink,
- white pigment ink,
- black pen,
- acrylic spray (white, gold),
- gold embossing powder,
- embossing ink,
- sentiment stamp,
- heat gun,
- paper glue.

First I cut and colored the bouquet and the fish bowl.

Next I started on the background. First I colored in circle with white pigment ink.

Next I sprinkled white acrylic paint over it. I used cut circle to protect the color from the previous step. I dried the paint with the heat gun.

Then I added the sentiment. I used gold embossing powder for it.

Next I sprayed gold acrylic paint over it and again dried the paper with the heat gun.

My background was finished and I just added all the cut and colored pieces. And my card was done.

I wish you all a lovely week and see you again next Sunday.

this is really pretty Anja- I echo your comments about the stay at home- hopefully restrictions will safely start to lift soon
