Pursue your dreams

My card for today measures 5 1/2 inches square so that I could use a 4x4 coaster. I painted the one side of the coaster with walnut stain Distress Crackle paint and let it dry. Once dry I ran my tea dye distress ink pad over the coaster and then sprayed it with my mister so the ink would cover the entire piece. Next I inked up my Uptown Rubber Stamp collage stamp with Adirondak Earthtones in pitch black and stamped it on the coaster. The fun part of the crackle paint is that you can stamp on it and the image takes on the crackle effect but doesn't get blurry or distorted. It's like magic! I sponged peeled paint distress ink around the edges of the coaster and then mounted the verse panel on it using pop dots. The patterned papers are from the Me & My Big Ideas Coastal Culture pad. I got the verse from a friend and the name on the side of it says Vicon Inc. I think this will be a verse that I use quite a bit. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a great week!
