Today's card was inspired by a number of cards featuring brightly-colored backgrounds for white die cuts, like this card here by Loll Thompson. Loll used alcohol inks to create her lovely background, but I don't have alcohol inks (a lack I may or may not correct). Using my Tim Holtz Distress Inks, I sponged an ombre backdrop for my white, punched flowers.
I love the way the Distress Inks blend so smoothly with the Tim Holtz mini blending tools. The intensity of the color is wonderful and pops right off the white card base. I added rhinestones to my daisies after coloring them with Sharpies. Because, you know, BLING!
This weekend, we put a downpayment on a new puppy! She's not been born yet, but we have second pick of a litter between two adorable adult golden retrievers. Here are the mom (Annie, left) and dad (Grady, right).
Their previous litter was full of adorable pups!
Around Labor Day, our lives will become very, very chewy and furry. Please say a prayer for Daisy, who will no longer be the only pup. She may not be amused by a little furball.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
