"live in the moment"

Good morning Blogger Friends!

I'm back from vacation and trying to get my mojo up and running again.  It's nice to get away for a short time, but always a good feeling to be back home.  When we arrived, the crocus, daffodils and pansies were in bloom.  Not nearly as warm as Florida, but I was inspired by the blooming flowers.
Today, I'm sharing a card created with Tutti Designs Delicate Rose, Dotted Nesting Circles, and Musical Stave die cuts.
 
"live in the moment"
 
 
 I cut a chipboard stencil using the Delicate Rose 
 
 
and placed it on the card base so that the design would be the central focal point when additional layers were added.
 
 
I inked over the stencil with distress inks
 
 
then heat set the ink a little and layered glass bead gel over it.   The gel is opaque going on, but dries clear and you can see the glass beads.  It's one of my favorite mixed media products.   I'll save the chipboard piece for another project.
 

When the gel dried completely, I assembled the card and added embellishments.

 Thank you for stopping by to share my newest  inspiration for Tutti Designs!
