I saw this stencil on Kristina Werner’s bloga few weeks ago (right around the time I needed retail therapy to deal with my dentist billing dispute!)
I blended three Distress Ink colors (Antique Linen, Shaded Lilac, Spun Sugar) over the stencil and let them dry. After I was sure the piece was dry, I carefully placed the stencil over the images exactly, and spread translucent embossing paste over the stencil. Now all of the shells are shaded, raised and shiny.
(SO HAPPY with how the background turned out!)
We spent last week at the beach. I already miss the sand, surf & shells! Everything is unpacked & put away, and I am all caught up on the laundry.
Back to reality – Mom fell again while I was gone and fractured her arm. Does anyone know where I can find a bubble wrap suit??

Yes, I have survived Thanksgiving hosting, and most of the leftovers are gone. I do feel like I have experienced a time warp, though.
Offspring3 brought this dog stamp home from a trip to Michael’s last week. Adorable. The dog on the left was stamped and heat embossed, the dog on the right was stamped (not embossed). The bow on both cards was colored using a Copic marker.
I came to the conclusion over the weekend that I am not designing one specific holiday card to send this year. I will probably put the same sentiment inside, but the cards are going to be random.
