River in the Spring

Morning all! Happy Valentines Day!!! Thought I'd post one I made a few weeks ago and never got around to posting. I'm still not in a crafting mood so HELP!!!!!!! It's 5X7, the yellow and green is Stampin Up, I used Martha Stewart around the page punches Modern Garland. Then I used a piece of Glossy paper and stamped the Autumn Bank by Stampscapes, then I stamped it on the Mirror image stamp I have and then eye balling it, stamped it on the glossy next to the one I had already stamped. I like the way it looks, kinda like it turns instead of ends. Then I used Stampin Up markers and colored in where I wanted, sponged the sky and water, rounded the corners and attached to the main card. I like all the colors in the flowers and bushes around the river, never seen any thing like it in real life, but on paper you can see almost anything. Thanks for dropping by, hope you like it. Have a wonderful blessed day and smile, God loves ya!!!!

Wow - just gorgeous!!!!

Maybe you need a Clean & Simple challenge to jump start your mojo again. A lot of white space with a little image.....nice and quick...might give you a boost.

Just an idea :)

Barbara Colbert said...

Janice M said...

What a pretty spring scene!Been awhile since I've played with my stampscapes, never enough hrs in the day!

Kathy and Lucky said...

This is such a beautiful scene, love it, just makes me want to be there. I am thinking your mojo and my mojo have left for a winter vacation somewhere warm, was thinking Hawaii or Miami :)

Colleen said...

Olga,
This is drop dead gorgeous. Just amazing the colors are wonderful. I hope you feel like crafting soon I know how you feel though. Been there and I usually go back to a set or type of design I really like. If that doesn't work I try something stupid that I think will never work! It usually turns out to be a great card.

Sheree said...

Wow!! Another stunning design Olga! I love the mirrored image of Autumn bank and the oclours you chose to bring it to life are perfect!..the trees especially!
I don't think you realize that your mojo really is there... Think Spring!
Hugs,
Sheree

This is so pretty...I love all of the spring colors (I am ready) and you are so right, you can create anything you want if you can see it in your mind. Tfs. I am not stamping much either, still trying to catalog and arrange my stamps, you can come help...

Sarah said...

Your card is so awesome! It reminds me of the azaleas at Callaway Gardens in Georgia. I found you through SCS. I've really enjoyed visiting. Hugs, Sarah

xxxtglxxx said...

Another gorgeous scene Olga :) Beautiful.

Now, when i lose all my motivation I find re-organising my stash and coming across stuff I have never used often inspires me to get going again ;) and there is nothing like a clean craft space to make you want to mess it up again! LOL

Have a smashing day!

hugs

Love the way you eyeball things! They turn out gorgeous! And you're right on with the colors, this looks very much like the north woods of MI in the fall. Nice job!

Kym Weber said...

Oh my gosh! This is absolutely stunning! Jaw dropping gorgeous! I too love how the river turns and not just end! Girlfriend, you have mojo! Breathtaking! Love the colors of the flowers and bushes!

This scene is so beautiful it make me wanna whip out my camera! :)

Caroline D. said...

It's beautiful Olga!! Cool use of mirror stamp!... you executed it perfectly and I love how it looks like the river turns too.

As far as mood... go blog surfing... new blogs that you don't regular go to. Also make flowers. Or get out your inks and make a few inky tags. I've just not had time to craft extra this week or last... heading out on vacation... and had to get DT stuff done plus regular life has been crazy hectic. OH... you can make some charms!
