Friendship Card Hop

I'm sooo excited to be involved in this card hop. I didn't think I would be able to be involved with my studio being renovated and then with my children, and I also work in a school, went back to school.

Courtney Keeber has organised a blog hop and this is open to Youtube or blog. I was going to do a video and blog together but time got away from me then I first lost footage of making this card.

You can follow along and visit each person and share the love we have for card making. The next link will be below.

My card today was from September 2019 Uniquely Creative Positivity Mini Kit

As I said I lost footage and was going to redo the card but ran out of time.

Image result for flowing dots stencil 
In the kit they have the Flowing Dots stencil and I used this, first to add the dots and colour on the left of the panel. Once this was done I removed the stencil and, honestly I didn't like it! 
I am a lazy crafter, I don't do over ( hence I ran out of time to redo the card... cause I didn't want to redo a perfectly good card!) 
I used Dusty Concord and then went around the edges with Black Soot. I spritz it with a little bit of water for texture.

I stamped out both of the images included in the set, as I wanted to layer it up with foam dots and glue. You do not get the dies in this kit but it is super easy to cut it out. I was also abit sneaky and cut the large unopened flower off the image and tucked it in behind and the image and you have no idea, except that I just told you! Lol

Copics Used:
Flowers V28, 25, 22
Leaves YG63, G24, G21
Flower centre's Y08

The sentiment is included in the kit and you just need to cut out the sentiment you want!

Lastly I added a couple of dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops Sugared Almonds.
