this card is one of the dozens that will go to matt during his time away. I feel bad that I won’t be sending as many to operation write home as I usually do, but I’ve been working on a few other crafting projects and matty is my favorite soldier – he ranks highest with me. making and sending him a card each day (as well as receiving his letters) has been great medicine.
once I finish re-organising the house, get myself sorted, and get back into a rhythm, I’ll up the cardmaking, I promise!
this is a sweet pea stamp designed by ching-shou kuik called Purple Woods. I’m still a beginning colourist, so this beautiful stamp isn’t being done justice yet. I’ll keep working at it and see how I can bring more life into it. she makes these beautiful and haunting stamps that I just love. I bought a few and am still struggling to colour them in such a way so as not to insult the artist!
