Hello! Thank you for coming to visit us here on the blog today. Stempelfrida is here to inspire you today with a fabulous card reminding us all to…
live like tomorrow doesn´t exist!
Nowadays this saying can be seen from two sides. First of all, I think it’s the good thoughts that come to mind: Enjoy every day!
But of course there is also the other side: What if there is no tomorrow, because we simply live without worrying about the future?
You usually don’t know me so deeply here on my blog, but when I used this saying on my card, these thoughts about ambiguity came to my mind.
There are so many things each of us can do every day to spare and care for our world and not harm it. Respect nature! Save resources! Avoid garbage! For example, you can use reusable nets for fruits and vegetables, baskets and fabric bags instead of plastic bags when shopping. Think about how you can contribute to tomorrow!
But since I am a very positive person, I like the other interpretation of this saying much better: Live as if there were no tomorrow! Always remember to enjoy your day. With all your senses and in every minute. Be good to yourself! Surround yourself with people, who make you feel good.
At first I stamped the butterflies with Memento and coloured them with Copics. Then I added a layer of Crackle Glossy Accents to them. The picture shows them while they are still wet, so there are no crackles yet. The crackles appear when the surface it completely dry.
I made my background with a round gelly plate, the fibres stencil from Visible Image and acrylic paint. I matted the background on a turquoise card and drew the black frame to match the word pieces. I had stamped the pieces themselves with Memento and coloured them wirh Copics as well. I rounded the wings of the butterflies to give them a nice shape and added everything with spacer pads to the card.
Stamp pad: Memento tuxedo black
Copics 0, B01, B04, B16, B39, RV11, RV19, RV34, RV69
Stadtler Lumocolor M
Ranger Crackle Accents
We adore this card! It’s so bright and happy. Your earth looks fantastic, such a great way to use this stencil! Our butterflies look fabulous with the crackle.
