HOPE- LIFE JOURNEY WORDS- CARD

Hi Everyone! It's Holly here today, with a fairly Clean & Simple card for you.
I began by masking the center panel and stamping along both sides of it. I used a two inch wide strip, and repositionable tape to hold it in place while I stamped.
 
From the HOME-CONGRATULATIONS stamp set, I cut the foliage away from the house, and used it, with a variety of green DISTRESS INKS. I sponged more ink close against the edge of the mask, then removed the mask from the card.
I drew black lines along the edge of the stamping, then stamped the center panel.
 
I stamped the barberry bush image from ILLUMINATIONS 1 with Peeled Paint Distress Ink, then over-stamped the image with the small BUTTERFLY, using Jet Black ARCHIVAL INK. With the same ink, I stamped HOPE from the LIFE JOURNEY WORDS stamp set. I added a little bling from my stash and called it done.
 
 
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
