greetings from Seattle



Sunday, already?

I need a vaca from my vaca!

I haven't used that Impress Seattle skyline recently:


This skinny card (3.5 x 5.5) has a lot going on:

die cutting
watercoloring with distress inks (mowed lawn/salty ocean)
stenciling (donna downey/Prima) with distress ink (tumbled glass)
heat embossing with stamp-a-ma-jig

Here's a better shot of the skyline die:


I recently found my vellum tape and love how it works.  I used it in the lower right and left hand corner of the vellum panel.

Don't you love that Chickaniddy Crafts Silver Foil paper?  Looking to add some to your stash?  Scrapbook.com has it in stock!

Gotta love Divine Twine's



I was originally inspired by


(my apologies, it became not so CAS with the stenciling so I'm not linking up but did want to recognize the fact that it was my inspiration)


and thanks to

Moxie Fab World
