Natural Beauty


This card show how I love to just play around with my inks and stamps.  I decided to make a card for the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast today (photo of the cake below); a card for the Little Red Wagon challenge (Monochrome) and also a card for the Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  I stamped the ferns from Hero Arts then embossed them in white.  I then sponged on Distress inks in shades of green and then flicked white paint over that for a quick and simple card.  I added the twine to keep it more rustic and natural looking so it could be suitable for a male or female.
Thanks so very much for coming by to take a look.  I SO appreciate all your most kind comments and emails.  Hugs!!

Supplies:  stamps; Hero Arts, Paper Smooches/ Distress inks/ wh embossing powder/ twine/ pop dots/ wh acrylic paint

  6. Is this a card, Karen? No, I don't think so. Surely, you've taken this down off your wall to show us, or perhaps you borrowed it from an art museum? Me, in awe!
