There Is HOPE

I spoke with someone today that needed to here this message. 


Just a bit of masking created a seat for the bloom. PRETTY PEONIES from Jane's Doodles is the star of this card. I embossed the image in white and water-colored it using AQUA MIST from PTI.  Smooshing the ink pad on an acrylic block enabled me to get the ink with my brush. A bit of water helped even out the colors. Dot Flower from Hero arts was the perfect lacy background.

I'm entering this into
 The Card Concept  Challenge #15 - Colour Challenge

and
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ,,,,Emboss It

Thanks for looking,
LauraJane:)
