Favorite Recent Project

Things have been fairly quiet around here craft-wise lately, mainly due to health reasons.  A partial shoulder replacement, lots of physical therapy, a broken foot, and a middle-of-the-night fall, in the span of 9 weeks. 

Due to this  I have not been crafting as much as I'd like, but I did take some time to make my husband an anniversary card.  We just celebrated 19 years of marriage.

I used a recently purchased stamp from Art Impressions called Ornate Window Set.  It came with a die for the railing.  I stamped it twice on watercolor paper so I could choose which one I thought turned out better.  I have enjoyed using my watercolors, a relatively new medium for me.  They are so much fun!

I combined the window with a "brick" background using black ink and an embossing folder. I mounted it on black card stock.  This card reminds me of the architecture of New Orleans, one of our favorite places to visit.  

Stamps, dies, watercolor, embossing... I hope this provides some inspiration!  Visit Happiness is Homemade for even more inspiration.
