Time With Connie

Hello everyone!!!  Where did this weekend go?  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Since it's Tuesday, it's time to spend time with another of our very talented Design Team members, and today we're spending time with Connie!  Isn't this the prettiest card?  Here is Connie's explanation on how she created this beauty!

Hello all!! Today, I decided to create a card using some Tim Holtz Alcohol inks!! I just love playing with alcohol inks!! My mixture for behind the verse and the card background uses a bit of Meadow, Lettuce, Denim, and Silver mixative. Love how it can create a polished stone look on some Glossy white paper!!

Once the ink was dry, I heat embossed both the Vine border and the verse, which is from the Scripture collection 3 set released last week! To embellish the card I added a layered cross from the Spellbinder's Cross Collection. I then paper pierced a border around the card, added some black brads and light green crystal gems. To finish it off I added a bit of black ribbon.

Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope you have a wonderful day!!

Paper: Shimmery Green paper, Glossy White, Basic Black
