It is cold and wet today, Ch Ch earth -quake residents are learning today that some suburbs are going to be bulldozed and cleared, the Government are going to buy them out so that they can start a life some place else, how traumatic this news will be for some especially the elderly. I think there are around 5000 homes affected.
But, it will be welcoming news for the majority I would guess, as they have had enough of no running water, no toilets only port-a-loos on the street to use, and no decisions or payouts from EQC.
Certain suburbs are a complete mess!
I felt we all needed a bit of sunshine in our lives so I made this card, it is from the
'Flowers and Wishes' Transparency set by Penny Black.
Stamped onto my watercolour paper, and I chose a palette which is predominantly warm and vivid. Initially I felt it was a little sharp, but once I coloured and pieced the flower heads in the whimsical orange, the card became cheerful and friendly.
I chose not to place a sentiment as I felt it would be a card for many occasions.
This is a close up of the flower head.
I added Beadazzles for the centre.
Nearly the end of the week once again, hope you are all well.
