Fresh Daisies

When my beautiful ninety-nine year old Mother left this world on December 9th, I needed to send notes to her former caregivers to let them know and to invite them to her memorial service.  Time is always very limited during passings but I am not known for instant card compositions.  Enter those wonderful Distress Stains of Tim’s . . .

 . . . after misting the card, I simply dabbed the three stains diagonally, misted again to blend, and heat dried.  Then came a spritz with Perfect Pearls Mist which I also heat dried, followed by a quick sponging around the edges with Chipped Sapphire ink.  After that, a lovely die cut, a stitched ribbon knot and some crystals and I was done.  LOVE those stains and am grateful to Tim for making them happen . . .
