When Mallory saw my card for today, the first thing she said was “looks like one of your old cards.”  Exactly . . .

Maybe it’s the ribbon I used . . .

or maybe it was actually trying to stick to a sketch I found online (Bev Rochester) . . .


I think it might be the old SU Baja Breeze ribbon I used because I wanted it to match the cardstock . . . . AND I couldn’t come up with anything else that I liked at the time.  (Plus I wanted to use something other than the seam binding I’ve been using.)

The designer paper is My Mind’s Eye – Blink of an Eye.

The image was embossed with clear embossing powder, then water colored with Distress Ink Refills:  Spiced Marmalade, Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint.


The embossing was ironed away (Faux Bleach/Batik Technique) before the image was die cut/embossed.  While the paper was still in the die template, Antique Linen was stenciled very lightly around the edges toward the middle.

I’ll be spending the rest of today getting my class supplies and kits ready to be shipped to The Queen’s Ink for following weekend.  There’s still some room in the classes if any of you are in the area and would like to spend a couple of hours with me laughing and having a good time!

Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, enjoy the adventures that come your way today!
