Where there is faith...there is a voice calling, keep walking you’re not alone in this world...

Happy Tuesday, y'all! Thanks for all the love you left me the other day on my card. I hope to start posting on a more regular basis...so keep coming back to see me, ok?

I am still in the process of a major craft room overhaul...currently I'm organizing and putting things together so I can find out what kind of storage I need. I found my stash of Waltzingmouse Stamps, and HAD to ink them up...here's what I came up with:


Isn't that background image gorgeous? It's from the Free Spirit - Boy set. I wanted to keep the card super clean and simple and let the image take center stage, so I decided to make it white-on-white. Like the cool funky splotchy look? I spritzed the image with a few colors of Glimmer Mist instead of using ink, and I love how it turned out! The sentiment is from the Words of Wisdom set.

Instructions:
1. Randomly spritz large image with blue, yellow, and pink dye ink spray
2. Cut and emboss image with Spellbinders die
3. Stamp sentiment in black ink
4. Next time make sure your black ink pad is not dry before you stamp on your main image panel
5. Cut white card base and emboss with polka dot embossing folder
6. Adhere main image panel to card base with foam dimensionals.

Here's a closer look...you can even see some of the shimmer:


I think I'll probably make a few more of these with different sentiments...but I think heat embossing them would be beautiful. What do y'all think? Any other ideas?

Thanks for coming by to see me today. I hope you have a fabulous day!

wow, this is a stunner. I have that background and have never used it. this is the best use of it I've seen so far. And it rocks with the sentiment just in black. If I case this and forget where I saw it, you may sue me. Or just remind me to credit you!!!
