Praying for you 55

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, August 20, 2011 @ 8:55 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend! It's already the second week of the CR84FN36 Color Challenge ~ time sure flies ~ especially my crafty minutes :(
I made this card for my dear friend/colleague who lost her 13 year old son this past week. No words can express how sorry I am for her and her family's loss nor can I even begin to imagine what she is going through during this difficult time. Please keep my friend and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
I FINALLY pulled out my neglected Ranger Picket Fence Crackle Paint! I applied it to the Tattered Angels Butterfly chipboard butterfly and sat by impatiently waiting for the crackling to begin. It was like magic! To enhance the cracks, I rubbed Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink all over the butterfly then popped a flower embellishment in the center.
Thanks so much for visiting today :) Please hop on over to CR84FN for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some new awesome inspiration, please visit the CR84FN designers blogs listed below.  Be Sweet!
Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles, Grand Calibur
Ink: Ranger Picket Fence Crackle Paint, Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink, Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: Prima flower, Fiskars border punch, ribbon from stash, Tattered Angels Butterfly
