A couple days ago, my best friend when I was a little girl lost her precious mother. If ever there was a woman who could light up a room just by smiling, it was Nancy. She turned being a "homemaker" into an art, and we all loved her for it.
In keeping with the challenge over at Operation Write Home which is "For the Girls" and to use any of the other weekly challenges, I decided to use the hand stitching challenge.
To create the background, I white embossed the script on watercolor paper. After spritzing it with water until the entire piece was wet, I dotted CTMH colors Desert Sand, Cherub Pink and Sorbet all around, swirling them together and making sure to edge in the brown. I also white embossed the rose (also by CTMH but retired long ago), spritzed it, and used the same colors plus Aspen Green on the leaves. The background paper is CTMH Desert Sand which I sponged with ink of the same color hitting the edges a little harder than the center.
