Kindness matters...

Yes, it really does!

I had some time today, before I leave for Shelbyville stamp club, to play with a new stamp set called "Kindness Matters".  This set has smaller stamps and they are so cute!  I love the one of the three butterflies, as well as the curlique stamp and just had to make something with it.

You might find it hard to believe, but my stamp desk was a mess!  Bits and pieces of past project rejects strewn here and there.  Sponges, and ink pads, and markers....oh my!

Anyway, this is what resulted from my playtime...

The Night of Navy card stock, designer paper and ink were already out, along with the strip of Cherry Cobbler already embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper folder.  The piece of Very Vanilla with the En Francais background was another "reject" piece that I pulled into the project. All I had left to do was to distress and sponge, stamp the butterflies and sentiment, then give it a spritz or two with Smooch Spray!

Pictures never do justice to this Spray!  I don't use it too often because I think it is difficult to direct the spray right where you want it.  But, on this project it didn't really matter since I was going for a distressed, grunge, shabby chic look.  In real life this card shimmers beautifully!

Gotta go pack my bag for stamp club....ta-ta!
