A New Beginning

Good evening all...this is my second post today.  I have been crazy busy at work and I am trying to get some crafting and posting in this weekend.  I also need to sit down and comment on several blogs that I have peeked at, but haven't had time to let the artists know how inspiring their work is to me.  This week over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog they are featuring Stamp + Mist.  Head over there and visit all the inspiration posted by the Design Team...they are awesome.  

I made a card for my niece's college graduation using Dyan Reaveley's Dylusion Sprays...they are so bright and rich.  I used London Blue and After Midnight with a few mists of water to allow the colors to blend...I could not get a photo to reflect the richness of the colors.  I chose two of Dyan's stamp sets...Which Way is Up and Quote Medley, and embossed them in silver.  The arrow is pointed toward a Tim Holtz Mirrored Star and I colored several other stars in Indigo Alcohol Ink.  I mounted the card on silver card stock.  I finished the card with a few flicks of Brushed Pewter Distress Paint.  Here are a couple of additional pics.

 Thanks so much for stopping by...have a great week :)
