Hugs

As I stated in a previous post some of my stamping friends sent me some of their die cuts that would be all ready to place on a card. So when the Dies R Us Challenge #77 email showed up I decided to use one of those die cuts to add to a background I had made with the Distress Oxide Inks and other Distress Inks.



This was a background I had made with the Distress Oxides that I originally did not care much for but when I took a Gina K. Designs Art stencil and sponged the design with an original Distress Ink over the top I was very happy with it. I die cut that panel out with a Memory Box Cross Stitched Border Rectangle Die and placed it on a white card stock base. The big Hugs die is from Papertrey Inks and that seemed to be the perfect addition to the card. I finished the card off by adding some Nuvo Rosewater Jewel Drops which before I added appeared to be a light pink. But as they dried they took on more of an orange hue. I was not so pleased with that but I guess it still looks quite nice.

I am also going to post this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge in which we are to make the sentiment the focus of our card. I do believe this will qualify for that as well.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me and I hope you have had a lovely weekend.

God bless,
Verna

Beautiful....I love that background. Haven't tried the Oxides yet with stencils but I'm about to. I like how you have place that white greeting over the blue background. It really makes it pop!

and it was a happy ending! Gorgeous coloring, and beautiful use of all the inks, stencils and die cuts. Verna, I especially like the way the "s" in hugs is slightly off kilter - too cute! It's a beautiful card! hugs, de

I made a little scene card using stamps for my May Rudolph Days Challenge entry. I had to add a bit of my own hand drawing to get the look ...
