Time for speed

Like you all, I find life gets complicated, so time for a fast back to basics page for an album I am working on for my mother in law who has recently lost her husband.
We all miss Malcolm's smile and this new stamp seemed to say it all. 


So what did I do? I used cream stamping card and sprayed it heavily with citrus yellow and orange ink in a bottle,  leaving the card wet with ink and moved the wet ink round with the medium sunflower. I dried this card off and trimmed it to 6 inch square. Then I over stamped it with the medium sunflower stamp and the Triple sunshine yellow ink pad.

I stamped the words on to more cream card with an Oak House Studio Sienna pigment ink pad and tore it out. Going for speed I dug out my tape runner and fastened it all together, I added on the sunflower paperclip/bookmark I mad on an earlier post.
Amazing what you can do when time is tight and you let go.

There are a few post of the sunflower projects to come from me. Your comments still count until I get the final post up.

I would never have believed that was a quick card - it's lovely and looks like you spent a lot of time on it

Thanks everyone, is is lovely when you do something really quick and it looks great. I do know that this takes having the right products to hand and knowing how they will behave. Plus all those times things didn't work out, you learnt from them too.
