It’s What You See

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.  I love that quote!  This is a quote from a Wordsworth set that I have and was inspired to use today.  So, it’s a very simple card today and a short post.

I had another Spellbinders Flower Impressibilities background that I wanted to use so with a sponge I hit the high points of the paper with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I then cut ovals using Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large which I sponged with Antique Linen while sitting in the die.  For the Spellbinders Ribbon Trio Tags, I stamped one line from the sentiment then sponged with Antique Linen while the paper was still in the die.  Lastly I used Spellbinders Flower Creations to fashion the flower which I sponged with Antique Linen and Spellbinders Doodle Parts for the vertical swirl.

    Very pretty card. Thanks for using the Impressibilities again.
    I too am wondering about those. I’ve read mixed reviews on them.

    Again you have made another beautiful cardc Becca. I purchased that flower Impressibilities and must have done something wrong. The first time I used it, half of it popped from the frame. Do you just layer it like you do using the nestabilities?ReplyCancel

    Can you do a tutorial on ‘how to use these impressabilities”. I’m doing something wrong..It’s not embossing. How do you layer this die?ReplyCancel

    Love your card. You have not only inspired me but you have been a roll model for my friend, Jeannie. She adores your style. Jeannie actually makes cards…I find ideas for her. I have some of the “stuff” to make cards and to scrapbook, but lack the desire [even though I really want to make them – does this make since?] Card making has gone to a new level of WOW! and I don’t feel like I could do a card that would be so nice. Do you have any inspiration for me? Becca you are incredible, keep up the great work!!ReplyCancel
