A Rose is Good .....
I'm here this morning to share another card I have made coloring the image with my Ranger Distress Inks Re-Inkers. I have had this image for several years and was going through some drawers feverishly looking for another stamp and saw this. Oh, I must ink up this baby and so I did. I love the way this turned out. I stamped the image onto Canson Watercolor Paper and cut out using the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles and then matted it onto the blue. The little sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations. I inked only one word on a larger sentiment and cut out with Spellbinders Fluer De Lis Squares. My ribbon is seam binding colored with the Distress Inks so it would match.
For years, when I was working, I purchased crafting supplies by the arm load. Brought them home and stored them away. I used to laugh that I liked crafting, but I was really all about the buying. Well when the job was gone and along with it the money, I vowed to use what I have first. Of course I'm like the rest of you...I have my little addictions that I can't do without but let's face it, if I don't use what I have, who will?
So be frugal where you can and indulge yourself now and then...after all, we don't want to put anyone out of business. Now, that is my little insight for the week. I hope you are getting off to a good start and that your week is a good one.
