One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

A little embossing, a little distress ink

I took inspiration from HERE on Betsy's blog for this card, using In Bloom stamps and heat embossing with white powder.  I used a couple of distress inks that I sponged over the embossed image and finally spritzed it with a lot of water and then waited for it to dry.  I like the soft effect of this and I think I will try it with different colors.  I did use water color paper for this effect.
