Blessings

When I saw the new Impression Obsession challenge was to stamp your background, I knew I wanted to use my 
C-A-C Spatter.  First time to try the technique of stamping & then turning the stamp before stamping again.  I used 2 Distress Inks: fired brick & spiced marmalade.  I die cut the tree (DIE006V) from brown cardstock & sprayed with Glimmer Mist.  The tree is inlaid in a white panel cut narrower than the tree.  I didn't think about the tiny pieces--took awhile! The IO stamp "Blessings" was masked so I could use just the one word.  
Finished off with a bit of red sparkly ribbon & 3 little brown pearls.  I'm also entering the challenge at SSS Wed & Freshly Made Sketches. I've had quite a few days off--probably will take all morning to go through e-mails & most will just get deleted--LOL! Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
