Off the edge?

Hello again, When it rains, I like to make cards :D LIM is all about one layered cards that are off the edge, And the lovely Darnell has a new challenge NBUS ie: Never Before Used Schtuff!!! Check it out , lots of laughter and fun at her super playhouse :D
 So that's what I did, short and sweet,
I made it this way,
Stamps by Uniko Studio and coloured with Copics, my stems are a combination of hand drawn and a mask from TCW, Mini Live Laugh, Love. So please forgive the fact that they definitely are not botanically correct :D
Sentiment stamp from Tim Holtz, inked and embossed in white detail EP, these are my NBUS, new to me !!

Thank you again for stopping to look, you are most welcome here, Hugs Gay x

Beautiful colouring and such a cheerful colour.

Darnell J Knauss said...

Um, Gay, is it mean of me to hope it keeps raining then? I do love when you have such beautiful works of art to inspire us!

Also, I was a wee disappointed when you went ahead and acknowledged your stems weren't botanically correct. And here I was all ready to finally use my Botany Degree for once! Okay, not. I've just never typed the word botanically before so I had to figure out a way to use it in a sentence.

Your card is outstanding! I mean, seriously, you are responsible for eyeballs popping out all over the place! You do top-notch brilliant work with flowers!!

Thank you for joining in my NBUS Challenge and saying such nice things to encourage others to join in and visit the Playhouse!! I appreciate it very much! Hugs, Darnell
