Quick Card for Hero Arts November Challenge

I did lots of inking on this card....
I started with the acrylic block stamping for the background with Pumice Stone Distress ink. Then I stamped Old Letter (CG197) with Pumice Stone ink. I clear embossed the Floral Brocade (CG187) and then added color with a blending tool and Vintage Photo and Aged Mahogany Distress ink. The card base was stamped with Friend Definition (CG125), it's really hard to see in the photo, with Pumice Stone on kraft cs and then misted pretty heavily with Perfect Pearls water mixture.
Here's a close up look...



Psalm 25: 4-5 ~ Show me the right path, O Lord: point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in You.

blessings,
nancy
