Rain Rain Go Away

Hi there...
We are drowning in rain here and there is no sign of it letting up in the next few days either. I ventured out but only for the follow up appointment on my spine... Thankfully it's all fused together now and I only have one appointment to go before I'm signed off altogether. I can't believe it's been 18 months already.

I got to make a card today ... This one is for the


It's awhile since I did anything Ombre and though I do have ombre ink pads... I like to use ink blending


The inks I used were Squeezed lemonade, Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade and I did a little splattering of water.
There's is a mix of stamps here too and all have been heat embossed.
 

 I used a tiny piece of vellum to stamp the bees wings and stuck them onto the original stamping and also added white gel pen to the petals
 
 
I need to sign off now to see to the dinner so I'll wish you a lovely day/ evening

Take care

 ~Ros ~

What a fabulous card Ros and I love the yellow through peach to orange tones you have used, and the bee with its beautiful vellum wings, and sunflowers, all black embossed with just a hint of white gel pen on the flowers and echoed in your pretty foliage tucked under the left had side of the mat, look great, and the sentiment and sweet little heart finish it perfectly. x

Such a beautiful card. The ombre panel with that floating bee, thanks to those vellum wings, is so full of interest. The doodled flowers and delicate white branch die cut is a great addition as well. Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Mix Up!
