Heartfelt Thanks

(Second post for the day.  Scroll down for my DrPhilScraps.com post.)

It's been a long time since I got in my craft room.  Love vacation; love being home more.  I mean, what's not to love about your own bed and a dedicated space just for crafting? 

However, there are a few vacation details left to clear up...like a thank you note to my parents for going above and beyond to put us up, loan us a car, and generally spoil us rotten for almost two weeks. I wanted to create something extra special and, by combining Color Q and Mojo Monday, I think I've done the trick.


The colors are CTMH Slate, Honey, Ruby, and Smoothie.  I am totally in love with this color combination.  It's not one I would have thought of on my own, but it's so chic!!  The sentiment is from Verve stamped in Ruby ink.

To make my dots, I punched out three different sizes of circles from Ruby cardstock, adhered them to my card, and topped them with a thick layer of Liquid Glass

And, so you know, the random stitching on the honey circle was planned that way.  Unlike too many other cards, this was not a flub that I "covered up" by doing something wonky. Really!

The hardest part of this whole card was letting the Liquid Glass dry.  I had to kill time by cleaning up my craft room mess.  I mean, who wants to do that??

Until next time,
Becca

  5. The stitching looks gorgeous on this Becca, as do the handmade 'enamel' dots...can't even tell the difference between those and the real ones! Thanks for joining us at Colour Q this week!
