Hearts, Thoughts, Prayers

I'm back! I made this card this afternoon but just now getting it posted. I used this week's Midnight Madness Sketch and the current Dirty Dozen Monthly Theme, Winged Things. I combined two of the three October releases from Our Daily Bread designs, With Heartfelt Sympathy and With Deepest Sympathy. I never bought the Baja Breeze ink to match the Parisian Breeze designer paper, so I used Soft Sky re-inker to stamp the image. I used the re-inker because I also don't have that ink pad either but what I do is scribble the ink onto an acrylic block and tap the stamp into the ink and then stamp! It usually comes out a little fuzzy or dreamy looking instead of a crisp impression but I like the look! I then stamped the sentiment over this with Memento Brown. I pierced around the edges so that I could sew with linen thread. For the three corners, I pierced the holes and tapped a Chocolate Chip marker on the holes to give the look of eyelets and added the linen thread. For the dragonflies, I stamped again with the re-inker, sponged the edges and then sprayed them with Pearl Glimmer Mist. Then I added all the brown pearls to finish the card! Loved this sketch! Thanks MMSC!!! And thank you for visiting with me again tonight! Enjoy your week!
