Marching Together

Good Morning
I hope you are all keeping safe as we ride out these strange times of isolation.
I want to send out a big hug to all of you and thank you for all your most encouraging comments that bring such happiness to my day.  

Very simple card using the Love Hands mask from A Colorful Life Designs.  So fun.
I began with a piece of white cardstock and positioned the mask over it.
Next, I took a baby wipe and dripped a few drops of Peacock Feathers onto it, then pressed it all over my stencil to give a more mottled look. I repeated that process using some Mermaid Lagoon for the hearts on the hand.  I doodled a border around the hearts just to help make them pop.  
I decided to cut down the panel a bit to make room for my sentiment at the top.
Simple mounted it all onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks again for coming by and taking a look.

Here is the mask/stencil I used:

What a wonderful card design and so cheery too and filled with encouragement. I think we never knew how much it meant to be able to reach out and touch someone physically like we are experiencing with this pandemic. I know it makes me want to hug my family so much.
