For You By Lorraine Aquilina

Incorporating water into your project can give it a unique look.  It can be an image of water, or water coloring, or just splashing water onto your creation.  Today’s beautiful card was created by using Oxide Ink Pads for Lorraine’s background, which gives a lovely chalky effect when splashed with liquid.  What a beautiful masterpiece!  Can you just imagine the look on your mom’s face when she opens up this gorgeous card?  I have to say those mason jars just finish the card. They always are lovely and make you feel happy!
