Lotus Blossom in yellow

I’ve always loved yellow and I particularly love these Lotus Blossoms stamped in shades of yellow... I think it makes them look a little like daffodils. Not the traditional trumpet type, but those frilly ones (no idea what they’re called).

I’ve used masking here to provide some space around some of the flowers; it’s really easy with a sticky note, but if you don’t have any, use your Tombow as a temporary adhesive. All you do is smear it on very thinly and allow it to dry clear.

I confess that for this card I used some retired ribbon. Double confession: I’ve only just realised that it was retired! I’m usually pretty good at clearing out any retired ribbons and stashing them away to make hostess gifts, prizes etc. This one must have slipped through the net and it was only when creating the product table below that I realised!

The Irresistibly Yours DSP makes another appearance as I love it. Here I’ve coloured the stripes with a sponge dauber and Daffodil Delight ink. The sponge daubers are the easiest way to colour the stripes as you just follow the lines, then wipe off any excess with some tissue paper.

I have several packs of this DSP in stock now, which was no mean feat as it’s not available to buy; you earn it with a £45 order! But I needed LOTS of packs for my All-Day Craftathon, where everyone will get half a pack to play with. I’m delighted to say that this event is now fully booked. I have three projects designed and one more to come up with. Needless to say, my mojo has left me, but it’s always tricky when it’s the school holiday and the house is full.
