a card & THE WINNER...

well...we got the word loud & clear...
you guys love tim's newest mini distress pads too!
I agree...they are just plain CUTE!

thanks too for the kind words about my art journal page...
making art makes me happy...



I had 2 emails asking how the above art journal page could be transformed into a card, for those who haven't jumped on the art journaling craze yet...

so I created a card, using the same technique as I did for the page...
you'll find that post HERE...

you can see the weeds look similar, but since the base is much smaller, I didn't use the girl or the spotlight frame...

instead you'll see the ornate dots background stamp used as borders...I used tree branch to stamp them on my specialty stamping paper card base...

the background was randomly stamped with the A to Z background stamp, using tree branch archival...

I used the tiny attacher to ground the weeds & to keep the card flat for mailing...
a little matting & done...

so that's how I would use the art journal page as inspiration for a card...


the 3 sets of the newest distress ink pads...


are going to ...
