In Dreams...

Sunday, March 4, 2012






Happy Sunday! I've been playing around in my new craft room, finally. I tried out some new paint dabbers from Adriondack. I love the result! Dabbing each color on 1/3 of a brayer at once I got a nice smooth flow between colors. I painted on white cardstock then stamped my images after the paint dried. Next, I distressed and inked the edges and added a corner ticket punch. It is adhered to brown cardstock corner punch the same, which is then adhered to lime green cardstock. I wrapped the double framed image with brown baker's twine. For some depth and texture, I stamped the sentiment onto a smaller piece of painted cardstock, used a die cut label, distressed and inked, then adhered it to a tag made from brown cardstock. I added a bit of orange paint to an already orange button to brighten the color. Finally, I added some yellow gems to the butterflies, brad on the tag and button on the twine for a little pizzazz.

Stamps: Images (Inkadinkadoo); Sentiment (Tim Holtz).
Paper: White, brown, lime green cardstock.
Ink: Timber Brown (Staz On); Sunset Orange, Sunshine Yellow and Lettuce paint dabbers (Adriondack).

Congratulations Nance. This card deserves its award. I love the look - the distressing combined with the warmth of the colours is beautifully earthy, and such a wonderful sentiment.
