Thinking of You done in Blue


Here is the card I made featured on the Penny Black  blog today based on a sketch that I saw and loved.  I stamped the main panel flowers called Awakening with Versamark then embossed with white.  I rubbed on Distress inks then dropped water onto the paper.  Since the Distress inks are water based, it leaves droplets on your paper.  I then stamped the sentiment from the set Gratitude which is getting a lot of use lately, cut it out with a Spellbinders die and while still in the die, sponged on blue.
I am also adding this card to the challenge at Moxie Fab.
Thanks so much for visiting today and hope you have a great weekend. 

Supplies:  stamps:  Penny Black-Awakening #4237K, Gratitude #30-105/Distress inks/ Spellbinders/ eb/ pearls
