Angels Are Near

Hello.  Welcome.  Can you believe it's September already??  Doesn't time fly when you are having fun.  Over at Rubber Dance we are celebrating two years of challenges.  Hoping you will join us too.  

Since we are celebrating there is a choice of 5 colour schemes from past challenges.   I used the July 2015 colours cream, blue and cinnamon.  

Pick one colour scheme and use all three colours.  You can use other colours but the main colours must be the three from the colour swatch you choose.  

I made my background by stamping the stitch stamp from Rubber Dance Sew Sweet stamp set and clear embossing on cream card.  Then I added layers of Tea Dye distress ink, letting it pool in places and adding some splatters.  

I added some Salty Ocean distress ink to the background and the card edges and cut with Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die.  The feather is from the new Textured Feathers set.  I embossed it, coloured with Salty Ocean and fussy cut.  

The sentiment is from the Sew Sweet set......

"Forgiveness is that subtle thread 
which binds both love and friendship" 

I cut the sentiment panel using Inspired by Stamping labels die.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Pop over to the Rubber Dance blog and check out the other lovely inspiration makes from the team and I look forward to seeing your entry.  Hugz
