Take a Little Time to Dream

It was my friend Lizzy's birthday yesterday and here is the card I made for her.


The background is inked with Distress Inks, spritzed with water and then pearl Glimmer Mist followed by inking around the edges with the same DI's.  The button tree is coloured with Promarkers and the pearls are all coloured to match.  The stamp set is the Dream set from Inky Doodles - I love their stamps, they are quite quirky and excellent quality.  I hope you are having a good day.  Take care.  Christine xx

Lovely, Chris, the stamping across the base and matted areas is really effective ... pairs movement from left to right with the flowing branches of the tree ... splendid! Anita :)
