Flowers in my Pocket

Very happy to say that I feel so much better! I spent a nice Memorial Day with my family, then on Tuesday I forced myself to start exercising again after taking a week off. That and letting out some tears really helped me...I hate when I get so emotional, but luckily it doesn't happen very often!


The cute pocket stamp is a new one from Whimsy Stamps' latest release. This one was illustrated by Meljen's Designs.
The pocket and flowers have been stamped onto copic blending card, colored and fussy cut. I  stamped the image again onto designer paper and then adhered the pocket to the card, but leaving the glue off on the top part, so I could stick something inside the pocket. I didn't have any real tickets at home, so for the photo I used one of Whimsy's older ticket sentiments to put a couple tickets into the pocket. The "a gift for you" sentiment is from a more recent set "Happy Birthday". I embellished with a little button, some twine, and washi tape on the left side.

Here is a closeup. I got the texture on the jeans pocket by coloring a piece of scrap jeans with a copic blender and then simply pressed the fabric onto my copic colored image. (Huge thanks to my blogging and DT friend Danni for the wonderful tip!)

Pleased you are feeling better than you did, I think sometimes we all go through these phases and often for no apparent reason. I think some nice sunny weather wold be good for us all as like you our Spring has been unpredictable.

Hope you have a good weekend.

I'm so glad you are feeling better. Sometimes crying is the only way to release emotions you are holding in. This is the cutest card. I love how you did the pocket and thanks for passing along the tip to press on the fabric. You coloring and shading is so realistic.
