For Becca

I was playing some more with the distress inks smooshing technique and put down some peacock feathers and seedless preserves on a Bristol card panel.  Then something clicked and I remembered that Becca is celebrating her birthday this month.  In fact, it's already come and gone, but her birthday bash linkup is still open.  I was much impressed by one of the images she posted to show us some of her favorite things:


It was that teal and purple wood panel in the bottom right.  So after my inks had dried, I put the panel into an old Tim Holtz wood grain embossing folder, and then sponged on a little more vintage photo ink to cover up the white that was still showing on the panel.  This wouldn't be a card from me if it didn't have a flower on it somewhere, so I used the last of these Hero Arts Jeweled Pastel Flowers (thank goodness it was purple!), and some Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers, along with some more pearls in Becca's colors.  This is so far out of my comfort zone, I decided to stop there.  Here it is:

Becca's Birthday
