Blessings

I recently bought several new Impression Obsession stamps & I'm using 2 of them, along with a sentiment stamp I already had, for my card to enter the IO Happy Fall Y'all challenge.  Since I made a burlap mat with a design (removed some strings from all 4 sides for the wider rows) I'm also entering the Canvas, Cork & Burlap Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  I started by stamping the Screen Cover-a-Card background CC049) in Memento Peanut Brittle on Kraft cardstock.  Then I inked the cling Brush Tree (E7690) with some Memento inks & spritzed it with Tsukineko's Shimmer Spritz Copper & stamped over the background.  The copper obscured the colors except you can see a little of the Northern Pine.  I decided I liked it, even though it wasn't the look I had in mind.  When it dried I over-stamped the tree using Versafine Vintage Sepia to give a little more definition to the water-color affect.  It doesn't look so blurry in real life.  I cut the image with a narrow border & roughed the edges with my fingernail.  The sentiment (B8182 Blessings) is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black on a left over piece of the background & again the edges are roughed.  The pieces are matted with black cardstock & attached with foam tape.  I finally had a project where I could use this thin, black suede trim I bought long ago.  Finished off with some black pearls.  Thank you for visiting my blog & if you're in the US I wish you & your family a blessed Thanksgiving.
