  8. Sigh... look at this. You always make me feel like creating a background. Believe it or not, I used to do a lot of backgrounds like this. Then all the coloring started. I love it all, so that's fine. You do such a great job on every card, Christine!

  14. Love the wonderful layers and depth of the background, Christine! I gesso'd my patterned paper last week and it worked very well. I never thought of using Fintec Metallic watercolors for stamping, but this card totally inspired me to try it. The sparkle of your thistle is so pretty!

  16. So cool, Christine, a fabulous look with all the different stamps and stencils. I did buy that alpha/number stencil and I love it. Love how you did the crackle paste. I tried the paste in my BAJ and it drew up my paper too much (very thin paper) so I am going to be saving that for cards! Wonderful colors here too. TFS - I always love to see what you are up to.

    Stay safe my friend. We are trying to as well. Hugz
