Just Breathe....


Some days you just need to remember to breathe....   A special friend recently went through a difficult time, so I created this to remind her to just "breathe".


I started with Pop-Tone Cardstock in Razzleberry (my favorite), Cotton Candy, and Pink Lemonade. I stamped and die cut the Classic Roses from Heartfelt Creations. I inked the edges of the flowers with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.

Then I used a stylus and foam mat to shape the flowers.


I layered the petals to created the roses. 


For that added touch I added a little clear glitter.


I used Pop-Tone Cardstock in Gumdrop to stamp and die cut leaves and swirls from Heartfelt Creations. I found that I can use Copic markers on the Pop Tones Cardstock to add shading on the leaves. I also added a little Peeled Paint Distressed Oxides to the edges of the leaves. I used the stylus and foam mat to shape the leaves.



I cut the word "breathe" out of Pop Tones Cardstock in Hot Fudge using my eClips machine.




To create the plaque, I re-purposed a monogrammed sign from Easter. I painted it white, but I could have covered it with paper.


I glued the swirls and "breathe" down.


Then added the roses and leaves.


Then I threaded the ribbon back through the holes.  I love how it turned out. I hope this will brighten her day and remind her to ......  just breathe.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to......

just breathe
