What A Friend


Happy Saturday!!!  I hope you're weekend is going well.  We have a quiet day today and tomorrow we will be watching our granddaughter 💓

This was a fun card to make!!  I love how the background came out!!  I put the inks shown onto the non-stick sheet of my Media Mat, sprayed them with water and dipped in a piece of Mixed Media Heavystock - going back and forth between drying the paper, spraying the paper, and dipping more until I liked it. Before putting the paper into the 3D embossing folder I misted the back of the paper and then put the folder with paper through my Vagabond 3 times for a great emboss.

Using a Mini Ink Blending Tool I inked the embossing using a light touch to keep the ink just on the high spots.  Doesn't it look wonderful!!!

I recently got some stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps and chose this one for the card stamping it with Black Soot Achival Ink using the Stamp Platform.  This is a great hymn!!!  After stamping I die cut it with a Stitched Squares die (Sizzix, Tim Holtz) and inked the edges.

I made another dipped in ink paper using both regular and oxide Speckled Egg and Distress Watercolor Paper.  The flower is from the Wildflowers #2 set of dies.

The Distress Marker was used to add green to the stems.  I inked the pieces using the Distress Embossing Dabber and embossed them with Distress Embossing Glaze Speckled Egg.

I cut a square from the left over speckled egg watercolor paper, distressed the edges and layered it under the word panel.  The edges of the background panel were machine stitched.  The Idea-ology metal bow was painted with Distress Paint Picket Fence rubbing the paint around with my fingers, dried it, then added some Archival Ink using my finger.

I love how the card came out!!  I hope you do to.

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Monday Challenge - Beautiful Botanicals

Hugs, Wanda
