An Angel Mid the Woods of May

I’m back with a quick post for today.  This card is simple but it took me way longer than it should have.  Life was pretty crazy today so I was called away from this several times.  I joked with a friend that the card took me 4 hours but the box took me 4 minutes. 

The little box was one I got from the $1 bin at Michaels.  They are satin colored and come in several colors.  I knew that one day they would come in handy.  Here’s another look below:










Stamps:  Lockhart Stamps; Rubber Cottage Stamps
Ink:  Black Brilliance; SU Bordering Blue; Versamagic Aegean Blue
Paper: Canson Effects Paper; Bazzill
Accessories:  Nestabilities, Copics; Michaels Velvet Ribbon

    OMG–your work is absolutely inspiring! WOW!

    I keep going back to the embossed square in the center of the larger square. I just got my square nestabilities and haven’t played with them that much–but this is one thing I have to try.

    Your an angel for sharing this!ReplyCancel

    Oh, this is just exquisite! I’ve been on the fence on buying that stamp, but seeing her done up so beautifully has helped me make up my mind. Thanks so for your inspiration with your beautiful pieces.ReplyCancel

    Becca, this is gorgeous! I know what you mean about four-hour cards. . . I have my share of those by virtue of how late I get to start stamping at night! Your box is lovely as well. TFS!ReplyCancel

    I just found your blog when I googled ribbon storage and I am very glad that I did!! Wow – you are incredibly talented! I love your style and your use of textures. Impressive work – thanks for sharing! (And yes, your method of ribbon storage is the one that I’m going with – after seeing many different ones – great idea!)ReplyCancel

    Wow, talk about showcasing Nestabilites — this card does just that! I love your use of the Nesties here and of course the Lockhart Gardening Angel is a favorite of mine, too! Wonderful gift set!ReplyCancel
