Wednesday Words

I was on a bit of a roll yesterday and carried on crafting until it was too late to catch the light for a photograph of the card I made. So I'm sharing it today instead. It's for the CASology cue card DISTRESS and Less is More's theme of TEXTURE.       We'd love you to display our banner

Here's my card:

I used embossing paste and a tiny part of a Rebekah Meier stencil to get my texture. I'm not usually a great fan of embossing paste, but used in a small corner like this has got me thinking I may be converted to its appeal.

I decided to interpret the distress as a sympathy type of card and added a Uniko sentiment to express this.  And the butterfly? Well I just love butterflies and they always seem appropriate whatever the occasion.

Stamps: Uniko, English Country Garden - butterflies, sentiment from Flower Power #1
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Stencil TCW, Mini Grow Page
Embossing: Dreamweaver paste, white

So pleased you dropped by today, thanks for your time. 

And keep crafting!
