A Note of Thanks for PPA215, Fusion

Sunday, August 17, 2014

The beautiful colors this week at Pals Paper Arts were calling me as was the sketch at Fusion.  I was pretty sure that I had some Pear Pizzazz DSP hiding in my stash and after searching for about 15 minutes I finally found it.  I wish someone could tell me why my stash of patterned paper never seems to get any smaller!


I gave the white layer a spritz of color then inked up the floral stamp in black.  I love how the color is soft and imperfect.  The button was an afterthought because I forgot the little star element on the sketch.  I tried not to make it look too out of place and added some scrunched up thread behind it so that it was a little more interesting.  I think it may be a little hard to see in the photo but the vertical layer on the left of the sketch is actually a long line of black embossing paste on my card.  Boy, I love that stuff!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Thank You Kindly (SU); Going to Seed (Woodware)
