Family

Knowing darn well my muse would still be on vacation after taking a few days off to spend with my family, I created my card using leftover background from this post.

Mixed Media Stamps - Paper Bag Studios
To embellish my background, I added the stitches in Black, then stamped images from Paper Bag Studios on scraps of watercolor paper, cut them out and sponged them with Ranger Spring and Summer Distress Inks.  Once all pieces were layered, sponged with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and adhered to the background panel, I added some dots with White Acrylic Paint.
