#41 - Distress Coloring

Hey friends,

'All failures, struggles and fears just add a little more color to life'. A few words of encouragement and a little color is how I would describe a card.

I blended the spun sugar, salty ocean and squeezed lemonade distress inks on the watercolor paper and got the colored background. I then stamped the bunch of flowers from the Penny Black 'Blooming Garden' stamp set.On a square piece of watercolor paper I blended the spun sugr and squeezed lemonade distress ink and stamped the sentiment from Kaisercraft which I later matted on a yellow cardstock. Stuck a strip of black cardstock and then matted the entire piece on a blue cardstock.

I wasnt very sure how this card was going to turn out, but once done I was amazed at how beautiful it looked.
