Did you ever have a day that just didn’t go well? No matter what you did, for whatever reason, it was crappy. For me, these kind of days are simple reminders. A reminder there is a bigger plan and your just a small part of it. My support system fell apart years ago with the death of my mother, my best friend.
Somehow, the thought of what used to be, came back. Maybe it was the smell of her perfume or cooking her favorite dinner. Perhaps it’s stopping to stare at her photo in my living room. The same photo that I walked past several times a day. My journey of healing has been a long one.
Enjoy my creation as I celebrate her memory. If she was still alive, this would have been made for her.
It took some time to create this card. I started by ink blending distress oxides over an embossed and stamped floral image. I used my favorite altenew white embossing powder for this. Once the first layer dried, I spritzed it with gold mica spray. Then I set it with a heat gun. Finally I dry de-bossed it with a 3D folder that matched.
The same image was stamped again but this time on watercolor paper. I embossed that image also but this time, I used my favorite rose gold powder. I then used a watercolor technique with the same distress ink stain, adding color for the flowers. The image was die cut and popped up onto a card front with foam tape.
This card was finished off with more gold mica spray and matching sequins.
What kind of struggles do you have with the death of someone you love? How do you cope?
