That bluey whiteness you can only get with Daz!

Another card where I've limited myself as to what I could use on it - in this case just white paint and 2 distress ink pads, weathered wood and bundled sage.  It took 3 coats of white acrylic to cover the metal embellishment, but I like how it turned out! :)  The photo is a bit dodgy, the mat around the edge is coloured with weathered wood, which is a pale blue, but it looks green in this photo!  Ah well, can't win em all! lol

I adore the weathered, worn look of this card! I like the stamping and the combo of distress inks and paint. look great! I also like the way your frame turned out. There is an "old world" challenge out there (I recall only the TL330)somewhere and this card would be perfect for it! :)

Hi, I'm new to blogs so please forgive me if I don't have this whole thing down yet. I just started crafting and scrapbooking using the Ecraft machine and the Ebosser from Craftwell (sorry I don't mean to sound like I'm promoting or pushing these products I just want to mention what I've been using.) This picture is amazing though. I know you didn't list it but that design on the right hand corner area with the oval and the bird, is that an embossing? I can't tell, it looks like it is raised that's why I'm asking. If it is, can I ask what machine you used to do that or how you made it? Thanks.
