My good pal at work tripped in her yard, fell on a rock, and broke her collar bone... and just handled the pain for a couple days before going to a doctor! Women, particularly mothers, are so funny: take care of everyone else before themselves! My mom is the same way. Here's a woman who had a heart attack... then drove herself to the doctor the next day to mention it! Anyway...
Supplies and notes
- Catalog card base with Theresa Collins modeling paste through a Martha Stewart stencil
- Inked with Distress Stain in Iced Spruce
- Dabbed here and there with Distress Paint in Weathered Wood and Antique Linen
- When dry, rubbed edges with Distress Ink in Shabby Shutters, which is pleasantly bright
- The sweet pale flowers are from Monika at "Creative With Monika" (THANK YOU, NIKA! I'M SORRY I DIDN'T INITIALLY LINK-- LAME! I MUST HAVE BEEN RUSHING!); brown-toned flowers from The Paper Studio
- The centers of Monika's flowers are Viva Paper Pearls in Anthracite
- The stamp in the background was a hand-me-down stamp (The Stamp Pad Co.) a friend had given to my girls... Somehow it ended up on my shelf...
- Mustard bow is vintage seam binding, glued to card with Elmer's Craft Bond
- Butterfly was treated in the past with Ranger Transparent Texture Paste through Tim's StampAnon stripes stencil, then fussy cut from DP... unknown DP... because I trimmed off the company name... sorry, unknown company...
- For this particular project, I adhered a second scored catalog card to the back of the first to make a nice standing card.
I'm planning to share this sweet card at the following two challenges:
