Hello everyone! 
It's been a while since I posted something on my blog, except the scheduled posts. 
It's because I have someone in my house who needs lots of attention. 
May I introduce you Latte, our new furry family member since two weeks!!! 

She is a 4 mo old Terrier mix from Oklahoma. We adopted her at a local animal shelter which works with a rescue team in Oklahoma. She is very smart but stubborn, so needs lots of training. Now after two weeks we are getting to know each other and I can find some free time for my crafting. 

As Kathy's The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge is running during November, I tried to draw and color some flowers when I have a piece of time. I colored a cosmos flower under sunshine on Day 4 using Prismacolor pencils and today I could turn it into a card. 

I made a mask for the flower and blended the sky and grass using some DIs. I wanted to show the sunshine using bokeh technique, so sponged white circles in various sizes in the sky with circle stencils and white pigment ink. I then added some grass texture using Copic markers and splattered white ink on it. The sentiment is from Penny Black. I stamped it first in Plum Wine and again in Noir Dye ink from The Ton, as I wanted to make it darker.

I want to link up this card at The Flower Challenge #2: Occasion (Birthday card).

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!
Have a beautiful weekend!!!

Wow a new member to the family. He will keep you on your toes. Something just amazing about a dogs love, truly takes over the home and the hearts. Enjoy but remember you are the top dog, dont let him become the boss. I already commented on your photo before and it never ceases to amaze me just how beautiful it is. Its time you came out with a line of stamps with your talent TaeEun, I will buy them all.
