Raspberry Daisies Beautiful Day Card

OK, one foot in front of the other here.

Step one in rebuilding inventory of cards for HorseSpirit Arts Gallery – pick a favorite image & color. Make a card.

I found a video on Facebook that shows how quickly and how high the water rose in Ellicott City on May 27, 2018. This camera is UPHILL from where HorseSpirit Arts Gallery is located, looking west towards the parking lot where I usually park (I would be parked at the top of the screen). This is only one of the water sources – the Hudson. The Tiber is on the opposite side of Main Street, and the Patapsco crosses under Main Street at the eastern end.

Not sure if this will work for everyone (I am signed into my Facebook account in another window), but here it is:

Supplies: Stamps – A Muse Artstamps, Hero Arts, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Razzle Berry, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry, die – Lawn Fawn, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.

#ECStrong Card

The last time I posted a card using this house stamp, I asked for suggestions on how else to color it (I seem to see it as a tan stucco house…ALL.THE.TIME.). Miss Hammie suggested that I try coloring it like the Painted Ladies in San Francisco. Great suggestion. I was prepping for vacation, never executed the idea.

Fast forward to this weekend’s flooding in Historic Ellicott City. Offspring3 told me (on Messenger from Spain…) that I needed to get my house stamp out and create an Ellicott City card.

I stamped the house on watercolor paper using different colors of dye ink, then used an aqua brush to move some of the color around.

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, JustRite, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Basic Gray, inks – Stampin’ Up! Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Red Riding Hood (retired), Wisteria Wonder, VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

This is from a cute little set by Sunny Studio.
