LIM84/FTL207 - Treasure your Memories


For this week's Less Is More challenge, to make a one layer card using foliage and this week's Fall To Layout:


I masked and sponged the left side with various distress inks in autumn colours and used a Papertrey foliage image. The sentiment says "Verses Rubber Stamps" on the side - I can't remember where I got it, but it is a favourite of mine for sympathy cards - it's always so hard to know what to say when someone dies, but "Treasure your Memories" is often a good one.

Beautiful card Ardyth. It conveys a true feeling of comfort. Simply lovely. This is the same sentiment I'm using for a card for my cousin's family.

Gorgeous card, Ardyth, the colours are lovely together. When you say you sponge with the distress inks, what exactly do you use to do it?
