Celebrate Hope

Hello and happy WCMD 2017!

I have a card!

Can you see the sparkle?  It is so hard to capture the shimmer in a photo, but it is very shimmery in person.
I am playing with my Distress Oxide inks today and dabbed onto an acrylic block, sprayed water over, dabbed my Arches w/c panel here and there a few times and repeated.  I used Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple & Worn Lipstick.  
When completely dry, I then gold embossed (WOW pale rich gold) my new SSS Fractile Leaves onto the treated panel.  
Next up was to take my damp paint brush to the centre of the leaves to spread/fill in the color and finally,  Wink of Stella did her magic!

I am submitting to the current Time Out challenge for breast cancer awareness/friendship.  You really need to check out the fabulous cards that the team have shared!  Casual Fridays stamps is offering up a prize if you use CF product...I did not use, but was so inspired by the DT cards, just had to create one, too!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Now why doesn't my little Maple tree have these gorgeous leaves of pink? So very beautiful, Chriss! xx

  2. Luscious, Chriss ... those gold outline leaves are simply gorgeous against the smooshy pink background ... love the powerful sentiment embossed on the delicate vellum! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)
