Theme Thursday - Cherish

I'm not at my most creative right now. Am tired & spend lots of time reading wrapped in a blanket. One of the forum girls suggested a play with messy backgrounds & all I can create is... well a mess! But this morning I saw the Theme Thursday challenge & an idea popped right into my head so I set to & created a bit of it. I enjoyed making my first ever triangle last week but it kind of went wrong. This one isn't a lot better but I'm happy with the results. Had to assemble it now during my lunch so will blog it quick. The photo was hard to take & the design isn't as clear as it is IRL. I cherish nature, the beauty of it never fails to make me happy. I also noticed my deisgn last week made the sampler. I was well chuffed as I really liked that piece & the one the week before that made the sampler too.

I stamped in black & inked in reds. Then I melted black embossing powder in random areas before stamping Cherish & the flowers onto white card. They were dry enough to cut out & stick this lunchtime. They are stamped in colourbox queues pigment cranberry & ruby. Stamps are Harlequin & floral, Crafty Individuals & there's also a leaf swirl in there somewhere from elusive Images.
