I Brake For Dogwoods!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a get well card with you.
I used a beautiful new image I got from I Brake For Stamps.
It's called LARGE DOGWOOD.

I also finally got brave enough to try out the new
 BISTER stains IBFS is offering.
I've been putting it off because I was so unsure about how to use them and if I'd be able to pull it off.  I did a small 2" sample to practice and almost instantly decided you really can't screw it up!  There's no wrong way for it to turn out.  I used the blue and yellow on my card this time.  It was so easy.  All I did was mist my paper with water, drop a couple of specks of the powders onto the paper.  I then just picked it up and tilted it this way and that until the entire thing was covered. After the paper was completely dry I stamped the image and verse which is from
I then colored in the flowers with Copic markers until they stood out a bit from the background.


  1. I love it. A beautiful blue and yellow Bister granules background. Love the dogwoods too!
