I was in such a "lonely" mood last night, hubby finally got away on his flight (he was supposed to fly out on Monday morning but was back home in the afternoon after they discovered computer problems for the wing flaps. They tried to fly out on Tuesday and he was back again in the afternoon, they had to make an emergency stop whilst taxiing down the runway as the engine died! Lucky try number three!).
And combined with that I have been thinking about my Mother and missing her, so I made two sentimental cards, one for my Mom and the second one, seeing as I cannot send it to OWH for obvious reasons once you see the sentiment - I will mail it blank to the first commenter (here or on Flickr) who tells me they can truly use it for someone special. I don't like to hoard cards, so I would really love to give it away.
Ok, this one is for my Mom:
Paper: PTI cardstock; Neenah Solar White
Ink: Copic markers; Vintage Photo distress ink; Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Hero Arts; Technique Tuesday (sentiment)
Other: Corner Chomper; Diamond Stickles; PTI Edgers Die #1
Isn't that rose from the "Two Birds" cling set (Hero Arts) really beautiful? And once again, my favourite fonts by Ali Edwards over at Technique Tuesday. The little butterfly is from the Antique Engravings set, I coloured it with Copics and then inked the edges with some Vintage Photo Distress ink. The shape at the bottom of the card is made using the edgers die by PTI.
I have just received my Hero Arts winnings for January and February and immediately had a vision of making a card of a man, standing by an empty chair, thinking of the one he loves, who normally sits in that chair, but she is not there, perhaps she has gone away to visit family and this is the first time they are apart, perhaps they have been facing some challenges and have decided to be apart for a while, but he cannot face life without her....Ok, I was in a bit of a strange mood when I made it! I really do miss my husband when he goes away!
Paper: PTI Cardstock; Neenah Solar white
Ink: Copic Markers; Chipped Sapphire distress ink; Memento Tuxedo black
Stamps: Hero Arts
Other: Corner Chomper
The blue panel in the background is white paper which I inked up with Chipped Sapphire, scrunched up and also splashed water on (tears of loneliness). I stamped the chair from the Hero Arts set on blush coloured cardstock. Then I used my copic markers to colour the legs and arms of the chair. I also used my Prawn copic marker to colour the edge of the cushion and some of the flowers on the chair. I think it came out rather nicely.
So, what do you think, is this another acceptable use of this Plaid Person from Hero Arts?!
Let me know if you could use this card for that special someone, or give it to a man who could use it should I say.
Wishing you a wonderful day! Give your loved ones close to you a hug today, it's simply no fun when they are away!
