Leaving on a jet plane...



Hey,

Happy Friday

So I am off to London tonight for 10 days.

All of my posts will be scheduled for next week, as work is going to be super hectic..

My card today was made for a friend's birthday, she has a love of polka dots, so I always try and incorporate them into her birthday cards.

I created the background by using distress ink (Picked Raspberry) through a stencil and then spritzing it with water before quickly drying it. I love this technique, you get such different results, depending on the stencil and the colours you use.

The flower dies are new and I bought them on sale at SSS - I have been coveting them forever..I did not buy the stamps that coordinate, instead I used a different SSS stamp set which I think worked out well.

I die cut all the flower elements from white cardstock and then used distress stains to colour them.

Final touch was the sentiment - my fave Neat and Tangled everyday label stamps. So versatile.

Have a great weekend, I will be with my parents mostly - sweet.
