Faux Carved Slate Using Prima and Distress

Welcome friends! Your visits are VERY precious to me! I know you haven't been seeing much of me since I've been taking on a few very ginormous projects behind the scenes, all unrelated to art/craft. But today I have a tutorial for you over at Frilly and Funkie. I'm featuring Prima IOD Moulds, flowers and papers, along with Distress paints with a tutorial on my Faux Carved Slate technique. You can see when I first used this technique HERE. If you would like to see details of my cards and learn how I made my faux finish, please pop over to Frilly and Funkie.


I'm sharing with these challenges:
SumMore Fun Mood Board #27 I think it's clear I was inspired by the colors, neutrals and flowers, and even the stone!
Double D Challenges May Flowers I chose the white and yellow colors. Gorgeous mood board!

I'm so happy you stopped by, and I really appreciate reading your comments! Please let me know if you have any questions!

Hugs and Blessings!
Sara Emily
