Karen's Inspiration- Day 4

Hi everyone! Thanks for coming by again today. Check out this gorgeous plaque of Karen's:

This shabby chic plaque feels so warm and sweet. Karen incorporated so many techniques and tied them all together with soft yellows, oranges, whites, and tans. The white paint is the perfect touch of distressing! I love the emboss/resist technique she did on polka dot paper- I've got to try that sometime soon. Finally, what a beautiful sentiment. Wouldn't this make a fabulous gift for a graduate?

Here is my take on Karen's beauty:

Thanks for popping in! See you tomorrow. :)

Stamps: Floral/Leaves (Amy Butler Lotus Floral), Sentiment (Hero Arts)

Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink, VersaMark

Other: Perfect Pearls with H2O in a Mini Mister, Misc. Plain Cardstock, MME Patterned Paper, JoAnn Craft Essentials Embossing Powder, Dimensional Adhesive, EK Success Corner Rounder Punch, Fiskars Butterfly Punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Misc. Pearls and Thread

LOVE your version of Karen's card today, Jill! I would never have thought to use those distress inks together, but they are wonderful! I must try this combination too.
