Prayers and Hugs

Brenda is this week's Hostess at Little Red Wagon and she's calling out, "Give us your background!" From paper piecing to inking to smooshing and stamping, create a background for your project!

Unfortunately, the sister of a dear friend just passed away unexpectedly so I needed a card for her. I used Barn Door distress ink with spritzes of water and smooshed the colour onto watercolour cardstock before stamping some flowers from MFT. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and then a few Pretty Pink Posh embellishments finished things off - or so I thought. I decided the card needed just a little something more so added Wink of Stella to the flowers. This card was easy to put together and I'm pleased with the results.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what backgrounds the rest of the Girlfriends have created and then whip up your own background to join our challenge this week.

I'm also entering my card into this week's Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.
