I HAD to try the Wrinkle Free Distress again. It was such fun and I WILL do it again. This time I didn't get so carried away trying to make my colors dark as I saw some really pretty ones in the gallery that were soft and light colored.
This time I used Ranger Distressed Spiced Marmalade and Scattered Straw - only dippped twice. Dried it and stamped the Roses Letter by Stamps Happen, Inc. with Memento Tux Black. I put part of a paper doily over the image, lace border over that and skinny ribbon on top.
The sentiment is from Inkadinkado and is tucked behind the doily, but is held on with a brad. It says,
"Life is like a roller coaster. It goes up and down, makes you scream and costs a lot to ride."
If you pull it out of the doily, it will swing and go any which way you want it to.
I made it for my friend gabalot who has not been feeling well for quite some time.

I love this card! Thank you for making it for me, Carol. I look forward to receiving it. I love those two Ranger colors and the distressed effect looks awesome. I've never seen that 1948 stamped letter image, it's cool. I like the way you used the doily and that it moves. The roller coaster life sentiment is perfect for all I've had to deal with for quite a while now. I appreciate your friendship, concern and thoughtfulness. Huggles to you. Gabby :)

I was feeling as if I hadn't "met" you in the gallery for a while, though I know I didn't have much time browsing over the last week or two. So I decided to come looking, and see what a beauty I found :D. You'll be hooked on this technique now - ever since I first tried it, I've gone back to it time and again.
