Some days you just need to remember to breathe.... A special friend recently went through a difficult time, so I created this to remind her to just "breathe".
I started with Pop-Tone Cardstock in Razzleberry (my favorite), Cotton Candy, and Pink Lemonade. I stamped and die cut the Classic Roses from Heartfelt Creations. I inked the edges of the flowers with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.
Then I used a stylus and foam mat to shape the flowers.
I layered the petals to created the roses.
For that added touch I added a little clear glitter.
I used Pop-Tone Cardstock in Gumdrop to stamp and die cut leaves and swirls from Heartfelt Creations. I found that I can use Copic markers on the Pop Tones Cardstock to add shading on the leaves. I also added a little Peeled Paint Distressed Oxides to the edges of the leaves. I used the stylus and foam mat to shape the leaves.
I cut the word "breathe" out of Pop Tones Cardstock in Hot Fudge using my eClips machine.
To create the plaque, I re-purposed a monogrammed sign from Easter. I painted it white, but I could have covered it with paper.
I glued the swirls and "breathe" down.
Then added the roses and leaves.
Then I threaded the ribbon back through the holes. I love how it turned out. I hope this will brighten her day and remind her to ...... just breathe.
Thanks for stopping by and remember to......
