TCM: God Understands Our Prayers

Saturday, October 12, 2013

Hey, y'all!  My turn is up on The Craft's Meow Store Blog.  So, I whipped up a soft, girly, little number, to highlight one of Nina's gorgeous, chalkboard sentiments, for you all.  Enjoy!
I started this card by stamping a piece of Lake House cardstock a couple of times, in Soft Suede ink, with the flourish image and highlighting it with stamped, in Pretty ink Pink ink, hearts.  I then ink distressed its edges and laid a slightly smaller piece of vellum, which was anchored with white-threaded, straight, machine stitches, over its center.
A couple of stamped, in Jet Black ink, flourishes frame the chalkboard, sentiment panel and prep the piece for the White, cardstock, card face to which it was adhered with foam tape.  The chalkboard sentiment was then stamped, in White ink, on a Black, cardstock die cut and adhered, with foam tape, in the center of the card face.
A die-cut, embossed, and ink distressed butterfly, which had its center embellished with a trio of gemstones, was then adhered, just at its center, in the bottom right corner of the card face, to complete the look.
Thanks so much for peeking in!  Have a blessed Sunday, friends!
