I am so delighted in how this turned out because it is for a very special stamping friend Vicky Gould.
Vicky lost her dear Bill suddenly a few weeks ago and she has been in my thoughts and prayers. Today
was no exception and as this card took shape, I knew it was perfect for her. Broni is hosting the Rubbernecker
Blogger Challenge today with an inspiration piece and that is where this card came from. Dee Ott's Summer Fern:
My finished card measures 4 1/8" x 7 3/8" I started with a large shipping tag, Adirondack Paint Dabber/Stream
and some foliage from some Yarrow in my yard. After dabbing paint on the foliage, I placed them paint side down
on the tag and brayered over them to apply the paint to the tag. I removed the foliage and let the paint dry.
Then, pearlized distress mists were sprayed on the tag in various colors in yellow, orange, green, blue & reds. Some
had perfect pearls added to them and gave the tag some shimmer. The tag was ironed to dry it and then it was over stamped with
a Fern Background by Rubbernecker Stamp Co. in Adirondack pigment juniper. The sentiment is also by Rubbernecker in the Stamp
Oasis section called Happy Memories. It was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and the edges of the tag were sponged in Distress
Pine Needles. The card base is Bordering Blue CS that was stamped with the same fern background using the pigment juniper.
I used Rangers applicator tool/blending foam to add some chalk to the image in sage green to make it pop a little. The edges of the card
are sponged in Distress Weathered Wood. The tag was finished with fibers, blue pearl brad and a filigree brad buddy by Making Memories.
