A Dream Come True


Hi my crafty friends! Today I'm sharing a card I created using a new release stamp set by Doodle Pantry. I was in the mood to try something different with this card so instead of stitching I distressed the edges of the paper and dug out some liquid pearls to play with.  The image used on today's card is the colored Little Castle digital stamp by Doodle Pantry.

My card base is Kraft cardstock layered with PTI White then digital papers from the Little Castle stamp set. I distressed the edges of the PTI White and digital papers with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The sentiment is also from the Little Castle stamp set. To embellish the card I added a strip of white stain ribbon and matching bow as well as some white opal liquid pearls along the scallop edge.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

  • Stamps: Little Castle (Doodle Pantry)

I love your colouring of the castle and the layers but most of all the liquid pearls look fantastic! I can't get mine to do that for nothing they don't look like pearls at all they just look like blobs! Fantastic card Karen.
