Abstract


Just me and my embossing folders and Distress inks here today playing again.  I am looking at my embossing folders in a new way these days!  This was an easy one.  Inked the embossing folder with Distress inks- Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint; sprayed with water and pressed my paper into the wet ink.  I had masked the sides so the image was contained to the middle area.  When dry, I added the sentiment and doodled a border.  Mounted it onto the blue then pop dotted that onto the white card front.  

Adding my card to these challenges:

CAS-ual Fridays- THREES (see the dots)


Less is More- COLOUR CHALLENGE


Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES



Challenges 4 Everybody-ANYTHING GOES



Hope you weekend is going well. Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamp- Michaels dollar bin/ Distress inks/ Provo eb folder/ pop dots/ enamel dot/ blackline pen
