LPS Sketch Challenge: Waterlilies card

Hi Ladies & Gents,

I'm so sorry to be late today & to have been missing the last couple of days. I'm a mess. My migraines have gone from bad to worse. I have allergies to migraine medications, so the only recourse for the pain is a lot of advil & sleep.

Sadly, my carefully-worked schedule is falling apart. I'll try to keep posting regularly, but the next little while will include some cards without tutorials & less details than I usually add. Apologies and thanks so much in advance for your patience. If you have any questions about any of the projects, please don't hesitate to ask.

Today is LPS Monday. This distressed card uses The USA Declaration of Independence (printed out for the card & mats), sponged gesso paper (for the water) & two Little Paper Shop sets Floral Frenzy (the water lilies) & Blessings (the sentiment):

Love that saying

the flowers are on this
Gesso Cardstock:

Pigment: Turquoise/Navy reinker & a little water
Technique: Sponged on in lines & then pounce the sponge to create bubbles which pop, giving you the bubble texture.

Thank You again for you patience;
I appreciate it more than I can say,

I'm so sorry you are having problems with the migraines and the meds. Wish there was something your internet friends could do. You are certainly in our prayers.

This is utterly stunning. I just love the pond and the flowers used in this manner are another "duh, why didn't I think of that?" moment for me. I hope you are not burning the candle at too many ends my dear. I have had to throttle back so hard on the blurfing just to keep my head above water...don't kill yourself!

Mel, you are so talented. Thanks for the ideas! I feel bad about your migraines. I have had help for my headaches from my physical therapist and he said pt on a person's neck can help some migraines. I have learned to stretch in various ways to relieve different pinched nerve pain. Sometimes migraines are from a pinched nerve in your neck and it can be helped by knowledgeable PT. I think there is an answer to your migraines and I will pray that you find it! Patty
