Friendship

Made a lot of progress today catching up on blogs, so took some time out to make a card for the PTI MIM challenge to dry emboss over heat embossing.  The trees are from PTI Through the Trees & the sentiment is from PTI Lovely Leaves. I love white embossing on kraft & decided to add blue ribbon & gems for a bit of color. Prisma glitter was added to the trees using my Glue Pen--really pretty in real life.  I need to get another PTI cover plate, but for this card I really like the look from the hexagon, thank goodness! The Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangle makes a great card base, don't you think?  I've really gotten into using splotches. These were made with my waterbrush using Distress Stain tumbled glass & Distress paint picket fence.  I used cardstock from my scrap pile, so can enter at Pixies Snippets Playground.  Even though the time away was wonderful, it really feels good to get back to making cards.  Wishing you a lovely week & thanks so much for taking time to check my blog.

  2. The splotches are so perfectly subtle on kraft! I don't think I've ever tried it on kraft (makes plans for the morning). I love the sparkle of the trees - makes them look freshly covered with snow!
