Inspired by...Amy

This week's featured artist is Amy Wanford! She really caught my eye over on the CASE study challenge blog. I love her clean and simple style- be sure to check out more of her awesome creations on her BLOG. Here's her inspiration card for today: See what I mean about her clean and simple style? PERFECTION! And look at those 3 button embellishments around the circle- love, love, LOVE those!
Here is my take:


This background was created by inking white cardstock with with Distress Ink (Fired Brick, Spice Marmalade, Peeled Paint, Broken China, and Dusty Concord.) After inking, I flicked the background with water to create the water spots. Next, I repeatedly stamped Penny Black 4180J Reverie with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Sentiment by Penny Black, 3661C Wish Big.

Thanks so much for popping by!
Oh, and just in case you missed yesterday's PB&J video, you can see it HERE.
HUGS!
