Ten Minutes to Embrace Today


10 minutes because this is a very quick card and, yes, we should embrace every single day!!! 

White and red cardstocks, PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints in snowflake, lake wanaka, guacamole, PaperArtsy Lin Brown stencils and stamp, Wendy Vecchi's Archival Inks in red geranium and leaf green, Stabilo All pencils, Pitt pen, white gel pen.  

Put a little of each color of paint on the craft sheet.  Use a rough, dry brush to pick up color and brush quickly back and forth across white cardstock, dry.  Dab snowflake paint through dots stencil, dry. Add Archival Ink through flower stencil.  Draw around inside edges of stencil with black Stabilo.  Remove stencil and go over lines quickly with a damp paint brush or waterbrush, dry.  Add white highlights to flower petals with Stabilo.  Add white dots to centers with gel pen.  Stamp quote.  Draw scribbly lines around edge with Pitt pen.  Wrap with red twine.  Add left over heart from another project (punched from red cardstock, white dots, edges rubbed with red geranium ink). Attach to folded red card.
