I was playing around watercoloring with Distress Inks chipped sapphire, faded jeans & weathered wood on a card front I'd dry embossed. Figured it'd go in the trash, but left it on the table. A few days later I decided to see if I could make use of it for another entry into the Impression Obsession Challenge--Feeling Blue? I die cut 3 of the largest tree from Fir Trees, DIE084-V, sponged them with the same Distress Inks & brushed on Shimmer Spritz Sparkle. That lightened the trees a little too much, so I watercolored over the shimmer with chipped sapphire which didn't diminish the sparkle at all. The IO sentiment, B3585, was stamped in chipped sapphire & trimmed into a flag which I mounted with foam tape. This may end up being hubby's Christmas card. I'm also entering Pixies Snippets Playground Week 200 & SSS Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by.
