I made it through another day in my grief by keeping very busy.. Working our online shops, packing products and shipping, cleaning house and just doing some crafting I managed to get through another day missing Forest. Last night I thought he was in the kitchen as he usually slept next to me on his blanket on the floor.. Then I had to remind myself where he was. I choked up bad. but it will get easier I'm sure.. I sure hope so..
anywho I went over to Jeanette's Soartful Challenges and got into her challenge this week of Arches.. Not that I did an Arch persay but the shape this image was in reminded me of an archway..
I used the Tim Holtz Technique in the background of Shabby Chic. Use Distress Embossing Ink and inked up my stamp after using a black Dabber all over my chipboard.. I stamped with the embossing ink. Put clear embossing powder and the heated it. Then with a contrasting color I inked all over the chipboard again. Spritzed a paper towel with water and wiped it off lightly.. The embossing powder creates a resist like. I love love this technique!
I put lace on the bottom but it's hard to this in this photo. The flowers are Prima flowers.. I didn't make them this time. Added a Pen Nib.. I love these too!!
You can buy the ink, flowers, pen nibs all at OWSE our discount club for all your paper crafting
I wanted to show off this flower I made for my Husbands anniversary card. I threw this card together as that was the day our Anniversary that I made the decision about forest and I was just so emotional.. I had to make John a card no matter what. anywho here it is..
Don't ya just love this flower. I know it's too big for the card I just had to show it off! Made with rose pedals
Thanks everyone for the Kind words about Forest
and thanks for looking at my creations..
