Thinking Of You

Good Morning! 

I am entering the Challenge at Papertrey Ink, Layered Dry Brushing and Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes!

I am sure my 'dry brushing' was wetter than needed, but I still like how they came out.

I created my background using craft paints in White, Yellow and Green.  I think I was a bit too heavy handed with it all, but am still pleased with how the backgrounds did come out.  I also added a strip of texture using a Darice Embossing Folder.  The texture really shows up the different layers and colors of the painting.

I used the pretty stamp set from PTI, Botanical Blocks III.  I heat embossed my images in White Embossing Powder.  Then proceeded to water color the pretty flowers.  Sentiment form Through The Trees, stamped in Black Licorice ink.  Candy Dots and Sheer Ribbon accents.  EK Success Punch.
I created this second card in the very same manner.

These floral images are really beautiful and lovely.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. So pretty!!!! I love both your cards, and I especially love how you used the texture on the background. GENIUS!!! And I'm such a fan of white I need to go in my craft room and create. Thanks for the inspiration!!!! XO~

  2. Very pretty cards! Love the texture and your beautiful flowers. Another technique I need to try.

  3. I like how it came out too. That texture on the side is really cool. I love how you placed the panel with the gorgeous flower over the sentiment label.

  4. What a beautiful card, such wonderful details.

  5. These are both lovely cards, gorgeous colour backgrounds and I love how you've added the textured panels. Very pretty flower stamps too.

  6. Both cards are so gorgeous. I love the soft coloring too! And, the embossed panels really look great with them.

  7. Beautiful card! Such a lovely design! Love that pretty image!
