from this week's Inspiration site Williams Sonoma, I thought of a technique to capture the feel of the piece. I simply inked up the negative side of my pretty Cherry Blossom ef with a LOT of Island Indigo ink ( I really should have used Midnight Muse, but I wasn't looking at the picture when I chose the ink). I purposely swirled the ink around with a direct to "paper" technique to try to imitate the glaze on the beautiful jar. Then I stamped my sentiment in Versafine Onyx and then put it onto a top fold Whisper White base.
This was a super quick card that could handle any type of sentiment, but with this Scripture verse it could either be a card of encouragement or a sympathy card.
