Happy monday everyone!

This is a card I did for todays Tech Lovers Challenge on SCS!


Vicki challenged us to use the piercing tech on our creation!

All the images are from Rubbernecker's Weeds ! The thistles were colored using markers (SU regal rose and edged with real red and old olive for the stems), spritzed with a very fine mist of water and stamped. I then used a versamark pen and fine embossing powder to emboss them! The sky was brayered using bashful blue! I sponged the sea line (brilliant blue) and the greenery (always artichoke, cert celery and barely banana)!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a marvelous day!
