Card for a friend of mine who is having a myriad of health issues. She is currently in a nursing home, so trying to raise her spirits. Taped the edges of the card stock to give the impression of a frame. Then I brushed Ranger Distress Oxide inks on the watercolor card stock and spritzed it with water. After it dried, I stamped it with Stampin’ Up Lovely as a Tree. Outside sentiment is from Gina Marie Stamps. Inside sentiments from Stampin’ Up Beautiful You (Life may not be the party we had hoped for, but while we’re here we might as well dance, and Wishing you brighter days to come).
