The terror going on in our neighbouring country, Ukraine keeps my mind occupied since the war started. We all know people who have relatives there, kids talk about a potential escalation of war among themselves at school and they are collecting goods which will be taken to the refugees. Hungary accepted so many families already and the kindness of people really warms my heart . In our crafty community there are card drives going on too, to collect money for charity. I had to ease my soul with crafting it out too, so here is my card to show solidarity.
I started with quickly ink blending a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with Salty Ocean and Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide inks. I added a lot of water droplets and diluted ink splatters for a textured look. When it was dry I die cut it with a Wonky Rectangle from Simon Says Stamp.
While I was die cutting I also cut a bunch of flowers from SSS Lemon Chiffon cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Spring Flowers Backdrop die set. I also cut the SSS Thinking of you sentiment die from blue glittery cardstock.
I used a small blending brush and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink to add a little shading towards the center of each flower and adhered them to my blue background.
I also added the sentiment and embellished each flower with a matte enamel dot from Doodlebug. It adds so much to the design, super pretty!
I hope you liked my card inspiration today and will keep checking back for more!
See you soon,
