Quick & Shabby

Hey Everyone! How's your week going? Mine has been a blur! I've had a card to post and no time to post it, so I thought I'd just hop on really quick and give you a change of a scenery.

The silhouette flower from Because of You is stamped both first and second generations (stamping two times with out reinking) in Baja Breeze to give a variance in color. I sponged around the edges with Chocolate Chip Craft ink, blending it around until it looked right. The sentiment is also from Because of You and says Happy Mother's Day (although you can't read it very well in the photo because it's embossed and there's a glare!). The ribbon is some white and brown striped American Crafts ribbon that I colored with a Copic marker to match. The DP is from the SU! Parisian Breeze DSP pack and I did a little faux stitching, some sponging, and then distressed the edge with my distressing tool before mounting on a Chocolate Chip card base.

What's in it?
Stamps: Because of You (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Parisian Breeze DSP (SU!)
Ink: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip Craft (SU!)
Accessories: Clear Embossing powder, distressing tool, mat pack and paper piercer (SU!), sponge, ribbon (American Crafts), chocolate pearls (Kaiser)
