Imagine Bliss


This card started with my ruled paper from Crafty Secrets. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this paper. It comes in 6x12 pads with 32 double-sided sheets. The collection of papers in each series (there's four themes in all) is just amazing. It's not available in stores, but I got mine at the StampinD'Amour Boutique. Click here to see these paper pads.


After distressing the edges with distress ink I added my stamped image (Queens Dresser Drawers) and inked up those edges, too. I colored her dress in with Prismacolor pencil. I stamped the "imagine" from Heidi Swapp with chalk ink. The ruler image (Limited Edition) was stamped along the side. The bird I cut out froma 12x12 scrapbook transparency I bought by mistake, but decided to cut up and use. "Bliss" is stamped out with my PSX alphabet (one of my favorite alphabets by the way) with chalk ink. I then placed the card against the brown and pink patterned paper from K&Co.

That "mistake" bird is great. Even your shopping errors are wonderful. You do vintage justice, Louise.
