Whenever I design a card for a shoebox swap (as this one for today’s get-together in Fort Meade, MD) I try to come up with something quick and easy, yet appealing. I decided to use the misting with markers technique with this floral image from Gina K.’s Stenciled Spring set. Love the effect, especially when you stamp on watercolor paper.
This time (I think) I came up with the layout myself — at least I wasn’t closely following somebody else’s sketch. I’m sure I must have seen it somewhere along the line. I embellished the Labels Ten die-cut by piercing a hole at both ends and inserting a knotted piece of black hemp twine, that was then taped to the back.
Thanks for stopping by!
