I've not had time to join Try it on Tuesday for several weeks, so I was thrilled to see this latest theme, I believe I can fly.
I made this card for my dear friend Kathy, who just lost her youngest brother. Kathy is the oldest of four siblings, and she has lost her younger sister and youngest brother. Now she and her only surviving brother are left.
I'm not very good at making cards, and probably even worse making sympathy cards, so the message I hoped this card would convey is "Fly free." I borrowed a bamboo stamp and used my own butterfly. I created a circle from fun foam for the sun, but I'm not sure I got the masking right. I still have trouble with that. I used my multicolored stamp pad to create the butterfly and the sun and a lime green stamp pad for the bamboo and the edges of the card. I found a use for one of my decorative scissors, too.
Thank you for visiting today because I always appreciate it when you stop by. Now let's head over to Try it on Tuesday where there are some absolutely fantastic mixed media entries this fortnight.
