I've been down and out for what seems like FOREVER, although, it's only been a week, due to pneumonia. Today, I finally dragged myself back to work. It was the first day of not wheezing and actually beginning to feel slightly better, so I thought I'd take it easy, go in late and try and get back into the swing of things.
Unfortunately, I had the need to make a sympathy card for the family of friend, and put this stamp set that I'd had for awhile, to use. I'd been meaning to ink it up, but as a busy crafter, sometimes other projects take precedence, however, today I'm remedying the situation.
The set is from Stamplorations and called "Lotus Love" from Dee's Artsy Impressions line. I also used the Stamplorations Honeycomb Delight stencil as well. The lotus was colored with Tombow dual brush markers, highlighted with a white gel pen. I used various distress inks for the lily pad, pond, and stenciling.
I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share for Kathy Racoosin's #thedailymarker30day challenge that began Feb. 1st as well, over at The Daily Marker. Color a little something every day, just 5 minutes. I hope to find the time to participate daily.
