~Paper Towel Texture~

There is no comparison to a mother's love.

My mom is almost across a continent and in the middle of the Pacific.

I miss her.

I bought this image to use on her card.

*Unity Present in My Heart,Versamark ink,Recollections Sapphire Pearl Embossing Powder,DP,Martha Stewart border punch,Spellbinders Scalloped Ovals,Bazzill Kraft,Fiskars crimper,American Crafts AC cardstock,paper towel adhered to cardstock*

I could just cry THINKING about this image, isn't it touching?

It also has the sentiment "I Miss You" in the set.


Okay, don't worry, I'm getting a grip.

I wanted to try a softer approach to the image, esp. since I wasn't going to color it.

So, I adhered a paper towel (Bounty to be exact...we have pets and it holds together for our needs!) to cardstock with temporary spray adhesive.

After inking and embossing, I cut the image out with my Spellbinder's oval.

The process sealed the towel to the cardstock, but I'm paranoid, so I gently lifted the top and bottom edge and adhered with a glue stick also.

Thank you for stopping by today!
