Balm of Friendship


Hello everyone, today I have a card to show you that my sister asked me to make for her to give to a friend and I have used the fabulous sketch from Waltzingmouse Challenge 81.


I was lucky enough to win the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge and the rescue remedies set was one of the sets I bought with my voucher.....I love this set and I can see it getting used A LOT!! I stamped my image and cut it with a nestie. While it was still in the die I sponged it with antique linen and vintage photo distress inks. The DP is from basic grey and it has all been sponged with vintage photo ink too. Finally I finished off with some blue satin ribbon and the brad is from Laura Ashley.

Supplies
Card/Paper: Ivory card. Basic Grey - Picadilly
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Rescue Remedies
Ink: Distress inks - antique linen, vintage photo
Embellishments: Ribbon, brad
Tools: Trouvaille, nesties, TH blending tool, sewing machine
Thanks for looking x

  2. This card is reaaaaally gorgeous, Liza. I just love how you have the inked label taking center stage, and the perfect stitching makes everything just pop on my screen! Your soft papers are beautiful in the background...your little brad embellishment is just the best finishing touch with this whole design!
