I Lift up My Eyes

Hi there.

I have one more card for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenge
at Splitcoaststampers for the Fan Club members.

I pulled out a background that I made using shaving cream and alcohol inks.

I know that's what I used because I actually wrote it down.

Imagine that!

I cut the piece down and added a die cut that my dear friend,
Nancy sent me  a while back.

I stamped one of my favorite scriptures on the piece and masked
the sentiment with a little sticky note.

I thinned out a little acrylic paint in my palette and
splattered it on.

Of course I got a big blob on the side.


I cut the piece down a little bit further.

I'm so glad I waited to put the die cut on there!

I had snipped off a little flower from the bottom of the stem.

That's what you see peeking out from the inside.

Since I used alcohol ink in my shaving cream, I can link up to
CAS Mix Up
I used stamping, alcohol ink in shaving cream marbling, splattering with acrylic paint and die cuts.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Beautiful colours in your background, and a great save with the die cut covering up a blob! I had to laugh when you said "I know that's what I used because I actually wrote it down. Imagine that!". I never remember to write it down when I make a background and I'm always annoyed with myself for forgetting!
