Quiet Life

 Do you remember when you had a yard for playing, no privacy fence, and your closest neighbor was one of your best friends? Life was simple with less stress. When I first saw this image of a cozy cottage it brought back memories of outdoor fun with the neighborhood playing football, red-rover, or just plain tag. There were no bumps on the street, and it was safe to be outside with everyone. What is your favorite memory?

   Cozy Cottage

   Flirty Flamingo A-2
   Basic Black 5-1/4 x 4
   Glossy White 5 x 3-3/4
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Moss Green
   Prussian Blue
   Brilliant Red

   Jet Black StazOn
   Old Olive


   Water Spritzer (Mister)
   Aqua Painter

First, I spritzed my glossy paper with water. I sprinkled brusho flakes on it, and added more water. I dabbed here and there with a paper towel if it needed it. I repeated the process as often as I needed, until I was "happy". I then set it off to the side to dry.

Once it was dry, I used my old olive to fill in the extra white spaces on the bottom of the card. I used my aqua painter for this. I set the panel aside to dry again. (You can use a heat tool to speed the drying time if you want.)

I then inked up my cottage with Jet Black StazOn and stamped it on my panel.

I added the brick fence toward the bottom of the card. 

I chose to leave the card without a sentiment, so that it can be used for any occasion. A sentiment can always be added before sending it.

Lastly, I adhered the layers on the card front, and the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.
