Well, I am still coughing but I think the flu has left the building and I am ready to create again!
I have had a blast all month long as Guest designer for Splitcoasstampers Color Challenge. The month simply flew by!
To create the background I used a stencil and added gesso. When the gesso was dry I added distress stain to the background. I enjoy using this gesso resist technique but stamping on the texture can be problematic. With the deeply etched lines of the Red Rubber Design stamp and the MISTI it was a snap!
For the inside, I used a sentiment from Joyful Notes which can be found in the Red Rubber Designs store. I chose this sentiment because a relative of a friend was in a car accident hit by a drunk driver. So very sad. To find out about her story click HERE.
