Tulip Birthday

I saw the surgeon today and he removed two clear suture tails at either end of my suture line on my wrist/hand. Amazingly he had closed the wound without using external sutures so that scaring would be minimal.

I can now start to make cards, but my effort has to be minimal.  The verdict is a recovery period of 6 to 8 weeks before healing is complete. If my hand starts to hurt I must stop.

Having been given the green light, I proceeded to make a card, using the Easter Blessings stamp set, and coloured it using an Aqua painter and SU ink pads.  I must admit my hand was a sore by the time I was finished, but I felt good at the same time.

I stamped the image multiple times at different levels on a piece of Whisper White card stock -covering up the sentiment attached to the stamp.  Stazon ink was used as my plan was to water colour the tulips.  Then, using SU ink pads and an aqua painter, the tulips were coloured, using two shades of each colour to create dimension.  Some Sky Blue ink was lightly painted around the tulips.
The sentiment was from Perfectly Penned, a stamp set that is (sigh) sadly retiring.

Stamps: Blessed Easter, Perfectly Penned
Inks: Black Stazon, Pink Pirouette, Primrose Petals, Daffodil Delight, Summer Starfruit, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Sky Blue
Papers: Primrose Petals, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Accessories: Aqua painter

No Posts for a While

As you have noticed I have not posted for a while due to an injury to my right hand, making typing difficult.  It also makes creating cards etc difficult.
On Friday I am having surgery and I don't know how long the recovery will be.
Will post again when I recover.
