A card & Paper08 - Freeze It!

First I have this card to share. I made it for my very dear friend, Joy. She spent all last week in hospital & I only got to know after she got home. So instead of a Get Well card I made a Friends cheer up card. The background is made using distress inks, Peeled paint, Faded Jeans & spiced Marmalade using the same technique I used on Monday to achieve a watercolour effect. The image, from Crafty Individuals was stamped over the top in my two favourite shades, Eggplant & Tea leaves. Word friends is from CI too.

Below is my page for paper08, Freeze It!


I froze a day in time that wasn't a working day. I know exactly what I would be doing on such a day & wanted to capture a special day. Paper is 7Gypsies. I had a massage & spent time crafting. I read friends blogs & enjoyed nice meals & plenty of relaxation in front ot the telly!

As I am going away in a week for a Scrapping Retreat, I have not done the Wednesday Stamper challenge. I can't undertake anything that requires a lot of time. I have stuff to make to take with me & preparations need to begin very soon! I have to plan what I will need as I can't take it all!!

Love the card - I really like the effect you got with the background, and the image stands out beautifully against it. Want more distress inks now yours look so lovely!
