It feels good to be back in the studio getting inky! It took a bit for my mojo to get flowing after not creating for a few days! I love this sentiment from Verses (QQ0853-E The Future Belongs) and think it would also make a wonderful graduation card.
All papers are from the Prima Printery Collection. I stamped the quote in Black Archival on the journal page, punched the top with the Spiral punch and distressed the edges with Prima's Distress Tool, then sponged on Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. The Seam Binding is dyed with Ranger Distress Stain in Tumbled Glass, then lightly sponged with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to age a bit. I also sponged the flowers and butterfly and added a bit of Rock Candy Stickles for some sparkle. Zva Creative Pearls were added under the butterfly to fill in some of the open space.
