Serenely Distressed


I finally got back to doing some stamping this week.  While I have been making cards, they have been my son’s wedding invitations.  I finally finished them and then needed a bit of a rest. I am not real good at mass producing cards, I like the creative side of things much more. (I will post a photo of the invites soon).

So when I saw this great sketch at Freshly Made Sketches I was excited to create something new and play along with them.


I brayered the card with pool party and island indigo at the top and lucky limeade at the bottom.




I decided not to add a sentiment to the card, so that I can use it for any occasion.


Ingredients :

Stamps : serene silhouettes, distressed dots

Card : white, espresso, pool party, island indigo

Ink : espresso, pool party, white, lucky limeade, island indigo

Other : limeade ribbon (ret), brayer
