Misted Thinking of You

Hello there!  Life is pretty busy right about now without me even trying to be!  I love Christmas-time but wow, it can get so ridiculous!  Good thing I can go to my craft room and shut the door, lol!  That is exactly what I did yesterday after my new WPlus9 stamps arrived, shut the door!  I got a little inky with mist, and me and my precious die cut machine had a bit of a chat.  I am just under the wire to enter this into the pot at CAS-ual Fridays, so here it is.


Starting with a white panel, I die cut the branch out of the side, flicked blue ink onto the front by rubbing a little ink down, spraying it with a bit of water and picking it up with a paint brush.  I then stamped my sentiment and the tree branch and adhered the panel with foam.  Lastly, I die cut and stamped the little bird and adhered it with foam and adhered a little gem.  Tada!


I hope you are having a great week!  Hugs to you friend!

Lindsay
