Bold & Beautiful

Hi Everyone:
Just wanted to share this card that I made using STAEDTLER Chalks and the Hero Arts Hand Drawn Flower stamp. The idea for this card came from an email that I got in my inbox from Splitcoaststampers. It was a challenge to make your next card using stamping on black cardstock with versa mark and then adding embossed white flowers of any type on the front. Then each flower is to then be coloured with chalk pencils. So with this in mind I thought I would make mine in a similar way. Now this card was made for the 90 Minute Scramble over at Hero Arts Flicker group a few weeks ago. You can see everyone's cards here. It was hosted by the ever kind Barb Engler. She challenged us to use flowers and a die cut on our cards. So this challenge was super sweet for me because I tied all these elements into one creation to make this card below.

This card was super fast to make because it was a one layer card which are the easiest to make. The colours I used were light colours first and then I blended darker colours behind each petal in each individual flower to give the feeling that the petals are layered over top of each other. All in all, this was a great challenge and I can say that I had a lot of fun making it.

I haven't had much mojo and it seems to be more times than not lately. I am sorry to those of you who check in each day to see what is happening here at Reliving Tomorrow and I do understand if you decide to not follow this blog. I have noticed that some of you have decided not to follow my blog and that is truly sad. But there have been some things going on which have been taking more of my time & focus. So therefore crafting as been put on hold. I am praying that things get back to normal sooner than later. I am hoping to share some more things soon. And I haven't forgotten my Fimo Contest. There is still time to play along. I will be announcing the 3 winners in tomorrow's post, so be sure to check back then.

Thanks to all of those who do check in with me here. I am very grateful for your visits and I appreciate every commit and suggestion. Until next time, take care of yourselves and each other.

Hugs & Blessings

Oh Dana! I'll never stop following you! Your cards are truly beautiful but thats only a reflection of the person who made them. :)
You take care, Sweetie!

Hi Dana! Don't worry too much about people following you or not, at the end of the day this is a hobby and you can only do it when the "passion/mojo" is flowing and when the rest of day to day life is not getting in the way! I still love what you post when you post it as you are truly a great artist! As this card proves! Those flowers simply look beautiful on the black! I hope life returns to normal soon my friend!

Dana, this is gorgeous! You could leave this blog post-less for 10 years and I wouldn't un-follow you. Sending hugs your way and lots of love for this beautiful card :)

Love your beautiful card! Those flowers are so pretty and a fun technique to try.

Dana, I find I enjoy my blogging and creating the most when I do it for myself, not for my blog followers or anyone else. And when it makes me happy then I know I am on the right track.
Hope your mojo returns soon you can enjoy creating your lovely cards and projects again! I love stopping by and seeing your artwork! {{hugs}} :)

Foolish to un-follow you for posting less...how else am I going to see when you have something new? Silly, silly. It does hurt, though, no matter how much the # of followers shouldn't matter, it kinda does.
Winter just seems to be a crummy time for mojo - I hope yours feels like it's back soon. I do love this card, and it looks like it was super fun to make :)

Things are looking so good here - very cozy and sweet! And this card is so beautifully unique. Don't stress about this hobby (or, passion) of ours. We do have other things going on in our lives and let this be here when you need it and can enjoy it joyfully. Don't let it be a source of concern. I know that I love visiting here whenever I can - you are a true source of happiness and inspiration. Bless your heart!
