Welcome Back on this Marvelous Monday! Thank you for stopping by during the past couple of days. I realize the holiday season keeps us all busy, but I appreciate you sharing your time and leaving comments. I have had lots of opportunities to create and will continue into 2015!
One of my goals was to try some new styles while incorporating new techniques into my papercrafting. This one used a stamp as my focal point along with distressing. I truly like how it turned out! Time to search for more sentiments!
I used the following sketch from 4 Crafty Chicks.
First, I cut the 3" oval using the Plantin School Cricut cartridge. I found the Stampabilities wooden stamp in my collection (love the font and saying). I used Ranger Archival Ink in Potting Soil brown for the sentiment and colored pencils for the flowers.
I have been practicing my triple bows (Thanks Lisa for your input!). I wanted them to be more free-flowing. Another goal accomplished!
Here is my new distressing tool. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby (clearance section), but it is available on-line. My hubby and daughter were quite impressed with the outcome.

Make it a great week!
