Spirit of Hibiscus

Hi All.

Welcome back and Happy New Year.
It has been just over a year since I last posted one of my creations.
The year has been full of ups and downs, treasures and turmoils.

at the end of 2014, I resigned all of my posts and design teams 
to take on an Executive Committee role at a community organisation.

Wow, that was definately more work than you would expect.
Now, as I hand my position onto the next person, 
I find myself yearning to create again.

I have been creating in the background, 
but only small projects that time would allow.

To get my feet wet again on posting, 
I thought I would include my latest card creation.

The beautiful Hibiscus girl is from Aurora Wings.
I printed her out on some Watercolour paper, and coloured her with my Faber Castell Watercolour pencils.

I fussy cut around her, added gold for the stamens 
and I used Wink of Steller on the middle of every flower.

I even layered the inside with some fussy cut flowers as well.

I am entering her into the following challenges;
Craftyhazelnuts Patterned Paper Jan 2016 Challenge
Inky Chicks Challenge 61- Anything Goes
Not Just Cards Challenge 28 - January
Avenue 613 Challenge-160 - Anything Goes No Twist
Inspiration Destination Challenge 70

She brought some light into my day, 
and I hope she brings light to yours as well.

Above all, have fun
and Happy Crafting.
