A great friend

I recieved a lovely package from Jacqueline and she included this adorable card...

Love how that little girl looks so pensive...

I also pulled out a glimmer mist background from my large collection and decided to stamp it up...

  1. The background was created by spraying white cardstock with yellow glimmer mist.
  2. Lay mask over yellow background.
  3. Spray teal glimmer mist over the mask. Lift off the mask and dab up any excess glimmer mist.
  4. Key for spraying glimmer mist is to shake until the sediment disappears and hold 6 inches away and spray in strokes. I have found that some spray bottles get clogged and you get spots so if this happens take the top off and run it in warm water to remove any clogging. Play with it on scraps to get comfortable with the even coating.
  5. Stamp the Lined Paper using brown pigment ink on the background.
  6. Stamp the berries using brown pigment ink over the background.
  7. Stamp butterfly and birds using versamark and emboss using orange embossing powder.
  8. Outline birds and butterfly using white gel pen.
  9. Stamp sentiment using versamark and emboss using brown embossing powder.
  10. Accent berries with copper stickles.
Thanks for stopping by...

  2. Suzz - this is a great card and isn't Jacqueline's one lovely. I have one radiant rain which is similar to glimmermist - you have inspired me to get it out and give it another go.
