Don't count the days!

Hi Bloggers.

I'm running a workshop locally today - should be fun!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I spritzed a little water into 2 areas on my craft sheet. I added a little CS Golden Mint Pixie Powder to one and a little CS Midnight Blue Pixie Powder to the other. I added each one to separate pieces of Cut n Dry Foam. I used these to ink through the Lots of Love Mask onto Coconut White Card. I moved the mask down the card to extend the design. I matted onto Deep Blue Card and then onto a Coconut White Card Blank.

I popped some of the same 2 Pixie Powders onto a piece of copy paper. I rubbed the Woodware Paris Collage Stamp into the powders. I misted the stamp and stamped onto Coconut White Card. Once dry, I cut out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Essential Rectangle Die Set. I popped onto a Deep Blue mat and added to my card.

I rubbed one of the sentiments from the Woodware Warm Fuzzy Greetings Stamp Set into the Pixie Powders onmy copy paper. I misted with water and stamped onto Coconut White Card. Once dry, I cut out using another die from Sue's Essential Rectangles and matted onto Deep Blue Card.
