All Good


Meet today's card.  Just me playing with Distress inks, water and paper again and playing along with the challenge at Splitcoast.  I am using the Embossing Folder Stamping Technique again for my bkg.  I know you must be tired of seeing it again but I love that I have a new use for my embossing folders and any time I can play with the inks, I am in!
I inked using Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord directly onto my eb folder.
I die cut the flowers and glued them onto my card front then stamped the sentiment.  

Adding my card to these challenges:

Less is More- DIE CUT

CASology- FLOWER


Addicted to Stamps- ANYTHING GOES





Thanks so much for coming to take a peek.

Supplies:  stamps- Mama Elephant/ Embossing Folder/ Distress ink/ Die cut-SS
