Life Can Be Tough......

Hello - I've been busy making cards believe it or not and working in my pocket album.  This card came together only after playing with my distress inks and the smooshing technique.  Love how the ink colours look together.  After I made the background I put it aside until I decided what I was going to do with it.  I finally decided on this - a friend gifted me this Simon Says Stamp set called Hand Lettered Encouragement and I thought the lettering would stand out perfectly on this background.  I added a bit of tissue tape and some gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine spray to finish it off.



I decided to make a little envelope as well using the same tissue tape and gold Color Shine.


I am entering this in the following challenges:


Stamps:  Simon Says Stamp Hand Lettered Encouragement
Paper:  Ranger Watercolor Paper, Stampin Up Very Vanilla and Rose Red cs, Stampin Up First Edition dsp (envelope)
Ink:  Distress Inks, StazOn Jet Black Ink
