Beauty

Hello creative people, I hope you are doing well.  It's a rainy Sunday here in Ontario, it's been a 'wetter than normal' spring.    The gardens are looking lush :)

I finally found time to play in my craft 'studio' and created a couple of cards.  Below is one of them using beautiful Chocolate Baroque stamps.

Life is quite busy, that won't change for a while, but it will be more normal and settled this Fall.


The background was created using Distress Inks, white highlighter Pen, white acrylic paint and stencils including the script.  I also added some fabulous Crystal Clear glitter by Papericious :)


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day
Shirley
