Something Soft and Pretty...

Are you like me? I love butterfly and flower stamps! And, while I don't buy each and every set that comes out (I do show some restraint!), there are a few that I must have. Give Praise to Him has such a nice variety of nature images and sayings, and I think the images lend themselves to either coloring or just stamping them in ink.
My sister in law was just released from the hospital and I wanted to send her a get well card. After that run of Halloween cards, it felt good to stamp something "soft and pretty".


I used the Sheer Shimmer Frost on this card and you can see a little bit of the effects on the close up. I panicked when I first spritzed it on because the card then looked "wet" but it dried beautifully and really adds to the card.


Card Materials: all stamps and papers from The Angel Company
Stamps: Give Praise to Him, Script, Get Well (retired)
Accessories: Angelee Soar with it Collection and cardstock, Marvy flower punch, Buttons and Blossoms, twine, Impressionabilities, Memento black ink, tombow markers, Niji aquabrush, Sheer Shimmer

You can find all of these items in my online catalogs here: http://chris.ismyangel.net/ but I left a direct link to the Sheer Shimmer spritzes in case you want to check them out - they come in several colors!

One more day for the August specials and then be sure to check your Inbox for my newsletter on 1 September...I have LOTS to share!!
