Quiet Blues and Browns


Hi Everyone!  Even though a chill is in the air and I’ll have a fire tonight, the weather is just beautiful in Lincoln (CA, that is).  I have a family friend who found out some bad news about her health recently and although she is still processing and really would like to be alone, I wanted to send her a card just to let her know I’m thinking of her. I love the blues and browns together. It seems like such a calming color combination.
I started with a Close to My Heart 6x6 diecut card and envelope and painted the top, edges and back with Robin Blue craft paint. Then I used TH distress ink in Tea Dye and antiqued the edges of all the paper. The cardstock and lace on the front is from Fancy Pants-Happy Together Line.  The flower print is a transparency laid over the top of the sentiment.
 
 The butterfly (Jenni Bowlin Studio) was glimmer misted with pearl and juniper and then edged with the tea dye. I used my Glimmer Mist stencil and distress ink to create the flourish. I liked that look.
I used a Bo Bunny cardstock from thier Et Cetera Line and again my stencil and tea dye for the inside of the card and envelope.

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
Kim
