Nature's Wonder

Happy Thursday! Day 2 of this month's Practicing Creativity release! Today I have a card using the beautiful set Nature's Wonder that will be available on December, 3rd:

I love the huge outlined words included in the set! I colored the "Sympathy" with distress ink that I spritzed with water (that was mixed with some Perfect Pearls for a bit of shine). For my panel I used watercolor paper, inked the stamps with distress inks and spritzed these with water, too. Here is a close-up of the sentiment:



Be sure to check out the other girls' blogs for more creations using this beautiful set:

I hope you'll come back tomorrow for the last day of the release and for another special, exciting post!!

Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful day!!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Supplies:
Cardstock: Watercolor Paper
Stamps: (Nature's Wonder) Practicing Creativity
