I haven’t participated in Friends with Flair for way too long.I created this card for last week’s Free For All Challenge on Splitcoast.ย  When I saw the challenge, I knew right away I wanted the house stamp from Little Whispers. I had just gotten it in the mail with my last order and was itching to try it out.

My card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. Snow cap Adirondack Acrylic paint was applied directly with the dabber it comes with. The image was stamped over the white paint with Jet Black Archival ink. After the ink dried, Red Pepper and Citrus paint was used to add a bit of color.

A wavy border was stitched around the edge of the card and May Arts Gingham ribbon tied around the upper edge. The ribbon was topped with a red button to finish it off.

Unity Flair!
