Hello!  It has been a few days since I posted a card.  My husband and I have decided to put our home on the market. We are not moving far away just in another area close by.  We have spent the better part of three weeks purging and cleaning.  I think I spent two weeks just in my craft room. It is amazing how much stuff we collected in ten years.   We may be able to list within the next two weeks. 

Even though I have not had a chance to get crafty lately, that does not mean that I did not take time to shop.  My PTI goodies came so I just had to sneak off to the craft room and get inky.  I am playing with this week's PTI Make It Monday: spritz stamping.  I used this week's CAS(E) this Sketch, and The Paper Players Challenge: watercolor.  


I kept this card really CAS!  I did not even use my new dies with this Tropics stamp set.  I used watercolor paper and olive and mowed lawn Ranger distress inks before spritzing with water.  I stamped the sentiment with Versafine onyx black.  I used some Ranger Frayed burlap for the splatters.  I finished with a few black sequins.  I used the sketch upsidedown.  


  1. Betty, your beautiful card makes me happy! Love the colors you used for the new Tropics set. The splatters and sequins finish it off perfectly. Best of luck to you with the sale of your house and in buying a different one.

  2. Fabulous card!
