Most of all Be Happy

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with family and/or Friends.  I am more than aware that Christmas can be a very hard and lonely time for people - if you are one of the latter, please know you were both thought of and prayed for!

I enjoyed a little time in The Studio today and in an attempt to clear away the gathering layers (and there were many) on my desk - I ended up creating this Mixed Media card.  I do love the Tim Holtz Umbrella Man and had an embossed image which I sponged over using Imagine Memento Ink in Teal Zeal.  The image has been outlined using Chameleon Pens Black Detail pen and a white paint pen.  Another Stampers Anonymous stamp has been used down the side of the the image and also been sponged lightly using Teal Zeal ink.

A Prima Stencil and texture paste have randomly been used around the embossed image - these have also been sponged using Imagine Memento Inks in Teal Zeal.

The butterfly from the Penny Black Inc. Social Butterfly clear stamp set  has been stamped onto Coral card stock using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and popped onto the lower right corner of the images. Details have been highlighted using a White Paint Pen and liquid glitter.  The layers have been popped up onto a card front of patterned paper using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares..  This in turn has been popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut cream card base also using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.
The sentiment is from Kaisercraft and the tag has been recycled from a gift I received some time back.
