Hope you can cling to {day 29}

This was done for Susie's hope you can cling to challenge seen herebut, the more I think about this I think I should re-name it to "it'sallLydia'sFault" you see its like this, usually it's Dina that causes me to collect supplies... but, the last few months I have been looking at facebook a lot more than I ever have in my life. and did you know Lydia posts links to amazon ( frequently ) just about all the "art" elements on this card followed me home because of that. The sentiment is up on higher pop dots than the bloom which was painted a long time ago and has been gathering dust on the table since then. the flower and the sentiment were both drug through some water-based wax (derwent art bars) on the craft sheet. (you can't really see it on the bloom) The hardwood background was heat embossed with some shabby enamel then I colored over the top of that with some artgraf water color graphite tfl.

I haven't been able to make a single card for HYCCT this year. At least I have a stash I can mail. Glad to know I am in good company - I am usually pretty good about resisting the dark side of the force but fell for the Art Bars as well. ;-)

PS. Awesome card. I bet is has a lot of texture IRL.
