Painted Petals: Friends become our chosen Family

Hi Folks,

I hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter Break. Well I thought I would give you a break from Easter Bunnies and do something totally different. This is a quick card I’ve made as a gift for a lifetime friend. It’s a relatively simple card however it’s great fun to do and I love the distressed effect of the spritzing. Design credit for this card goes to Julie Davison. I had noticed her card on Pinterest and just loved it. What do you think of my take on it? (and don’t forget to check out the quick video tutorial below)

I used my inkpad to distress the little plaque and sprayed with a silicone sealant.

 I love the perfect coordination of Stampin’ Up! products. I think my little teddy agrees 😉

To make the video shorter, I tried a new format (in other words I did very little talking lol). I would love your feedback on it as I’m not at all sure. 🙂

I would love to be your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator so click here to view shop 🙂
