{Tiddly Inks} Breathe Easier

I have another entry for the Tiddly Inks designer call that's going on this month. You can find all of the details HERE if you would like to throw your hat in for a chance to be on the TI team! I just started collecting a few Tiddly Inks images not that long ago, but just never had the time to use them (I'm sure you all know how that goes!! lol) Lately, I've had a bit more stampy time on my hands and have started using a few companies that I hadn't had the chance to before! Change is good they say ;)

I made a 5x7 home decor frame using Wryn- New Wings. I am in LOVE with these Wryn images~ I went through my TI digi's and Wryn's are all I have at the moment, lol!

I used a computer generated sentiment, printed it out and die cut and sponged. I love the quote, 'To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived- that is to have succeeded' Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I used OA DP, sponged with distress ink and machine stitched 1" strips to a white CS base. The image is coloured with Copics and pastels. I added a twill bow, tearing a 1.5" strip (SU) in half to get the frayed look. I wanted the bow to look like cotton dressing strips. I added a button (PTI) tied with hemp cord (MFT). I used a Deconstructed Sketch (109) for my layout.

I LOVE the way this turned out! It's staying with me, and is going to decorate my studio! Thanks for popping in today :D
