Across The Miles

Hi friends! Happy Hump Day – I hope you have a wonderful day! So hard to believe we’re headed into July already! I’ve popped in this morning to share another sample I created for Prickley Pear Stamps! I’m so in love with these stamps and dies – I could play endlessly in my studio, lol! I created a pretty ‘missing you’ shaped card featuring the gorgeous Blue Without You Bluebonnets clear stamp set.

I stamped the bluebonnets in Versamark and heat embossed the image in gold. I pressed blue distress ink onto my glass mat, spritzed a little water on it, and watercolored the bluebonnets. I used the heat tool sporadically to dry the panel before adding more color in spots. I colored the tops of the bluebonnets and the leaves (and the little tiny bee in the upper left!) with Nuvo alcohol markers once the panel was dry.

Keeping the inside very simple, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in blue archival ink.

And one more look… loving how the watercoloring looks with the gold embossing!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
