This is my 3rd card for Jennifer McGuires Lasting Hearts Card Drive.  For details and to join in click on the hearts or above link.


More Color Burst by Ken Oliver, This  time I used Orange and Yellow Ochre.   I start by heavily spritzing  watercolor paper with a fine water mist, next I sprinkle the Pigment Powder on the wet paper and watch the magic happen.  If there isn’t enough movement in the colors I spritz again with water.   When totally dry, I Stamped with Hero Arts called Hello Flowers,  then I cut it out with Blossom Cuts Fancy Dies by Hero Arts.    For the final touch I used my re-purposed/RECYCLED shiny gold Gift Bag and backed it with 2 inch wide Score Tape then die cut it with the word Prayer with the Exclusive Prayers combination stamp & die set by Hero Arts & Simon Says Stamp.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous and wonderful colors.

  2. Long time no see, Lagene. Hope you are doing well. Love the card! TFS! kReN@afourthlife.blogspot.com

  3. I love the embossing!

  4. What an absolutely charming card you’ve created here! I really like the dimension you added to the background with the embossing and how the floral theme is carried throughout the card. The metallic touches give it such an elegant feel and I adore the little sparks of color in the main flower itself. I can see this card working perfectly in so many different scenarios and I’m so glad you shared it with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Leaving you with the encouragement only the Word of God can provide in James 1:12 which tells us, “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.” Have a blessed weekend.
