Inspired Get Well

Hi!  Happy Friday to you! I am over on the Picket Fence Studios Blog today! 

Occasionally, when I see a new stamp or die I see something a little different than the designer intended.  That's what happened to me when I saw the Cobblestone Path stamp.  I immediately saw stained glass windows and arches!  I placed the stamp on my MISTI and inked it in Nautical Blue then spritzed it with water.  Next, I stamped it on cardstock.   I actually created about three backgrounds because I liked the look so much. They were all slightly different depending on how much water I used.
 Lastly, I wanted to feature as much of the beautiful pattern as possible so I added the encouraging  get well sentiment.

My visit to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit several years ago is what inspired the abstract vision for my card.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  1. That is such a cool stamp. I can see the cathedral inspiration on your card. Love the water sprayed softening of the image. I can also see fish scales with this stamp.

  2. beautiful inspiration and your card has such meaning.

  3. What a wonderful alternate 'view' of the stamp Angie, and an amazing card as a result. Well done, and I can see how you were inspired by the beautiful monastery, especially the nave.


You make my day with your sweet comments!!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
