Mom's favorite color is blue and I love Broken China Distress Ink so it was a no-brainer. I started by using the Layered Stencil Embossing Technique that Tim Holtz described in Compendium of Curiosities Vol III...using the oval cutout of the Embossing Diffuser to guide my inking. The background was shaded with Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean and Broken China Distress Inks. My small chipboard swirl was painted with Picket Fence Distress Paint and then covered with a coat of Clear Rock Candy Crackle.
I finished off the card with a stamped sentiment and mounted it on a sea-green piece of card stock. The house is quiet...my husband and one of my daughters is sleeping and the other daughter has escaped to the privacy of her room.. I am enjoying the peace after a busy but wonderful day. I am truly blessed. Thanks for stopping by :)
