Gumnut Flower Wishes

I have been sick all week with the “man flu” (goodness, never realised how debilitating it can be) and have now passed it onto my husband, who until a few days ago was hale & hearty, and over-confidant in his own defenses ability to stave off infections – but who now feels he is ‘dying‘. So apart from walking the dog, we’ve been self-isolating, which is ok because it’s winter and the weather is not so inviting outdoors. I haven’t felt like doing much, but have managed to finish off a few cards I had started.

The red in this background called to me, as I feel I need a little more energy in my life at the moment. It was done with Wild Honey & Aged Mahogany Distress Stain sprays. The 2 stamp images (Gumnut Flower & Gumnut Leaves) were designed by Helen Williams for Stamp-it. I coloured in with watercolour pencils and used red & yellow Liquid Pearls to decorate the flowers. The corner die in gold paper is from Tim Holtz ‘Mixed Media’ die set siz660220. The ‘Best Wishes’ is a sticker from the $2 store.
