Golden daysPosted: August 1, 2013
Although it is a little dreary and wet today we have been enjoying beautiful days of sunshine lately so a golden theme seemed appropriate.
The little panel started out as a bigger experimental panel onto which I brayered blue and green ink. I then coloured the iris stamp with markers spritzed it, then stamped. I added some script on the left, some flourishes around the edges and finally a sentiment. Once trimmed I had to decide where and on what sized card I would place the panel. I played around with a landscape orientation for quite a while but it just wasn’t working for me so I settled on popping up the panel on a portrait oriented card base instead. You will probably realize that adding a charm is a first for me but I really liked the gold accents in the ribbon, charm and cord. They helped highlight the summer feel of the panel.
Hope you are enjoying some sunshine too.
