Today’s card uses the Best Dressed Suite again. I’m telling you, this is one fabulous Suite. I love the pattern paper. The images are over-the-top girly and I love the sentiments in this stamp set, specially this one. Kindness is always in style. It doesn’t take much to be kind to people and it’s something we should strive for on a daily basis.
I love the perfume bottle in the stamp set. It reminds me of those expensive bottles you see in the designer shops. I watercolored this perfume bottle and the flowers with Blackberry Bliss. I used a very, very light shade for the center part of the bottle. You can’t really tell here in the photo, but I used my Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to color the bottle and it is very sparkly in real life. The rhinestones are colored using the Dark Blackberry Bliss Blends marker. Since it’s an alcohol marker, it will not rub off. I love the way this card turned out. I don’t use this Blackberry Bliss color very often but it sure is pretty.
We’ve been in quarantine for close two months now. I personally love working from home, and I’m loving all the extra time with my kids before they move out for College in a few months (maybe). Everyday I think about how blessed I am that I have a job that allows me to work from home and that my kids are older so we don’t have the home-school struggles.
As the time continues to pass, the quarantine debate is more vocal every day. I know the past couple months have been very tough and stressful for many, many people. I miss going places and doing things too. I worry about my family’s health as well. As I see people struggling, I remind myself to be kind because we are all in this together. I try to share kindness where I can. Being kind doesn’t cost anything.
