Kindness to oneself

Hello everyone

I wanted to make a card for our workplace counsellor who runs sessions twice a week for nearly 200 people suffering with mental health problems ( I am one of the facilitators for the meetings therefore taking turns to run them) She is one amazing lady. 

Well I saw Eileen Godwins You Tube video using this word stamp called Faith.  A shout out to Eileen!

I folded and creased an A4 sheet of cream card for the cardbase and a front panel slightly smaller

Anyhow here are the Lavinia stamps used for this card 

I bought the stamp Faith specifically for this card, will find it useful for other projects

I also used Pipin, mini flowers, flutterby and Leaf 5

I used Versafine clair Nocturne, Glamorous and Rainforest,  

Elements inks Confetti and Della blue

Stencil Flower spray which I used behind the words, around 2 corners on card base, inside the card and on an envelope - these are not shown in the photos as this was a pain to get a half decent pic lol

Holographic glitter

Black fineliner and black sharpie

White pastel pencil to highlight Pipin and give him shape

The wiggly lines by hand, thats why they are wiggly lol another piece of inspiration from Eileen

Thank you for visiting me appreciate it
