The quotation I used is by Anne McCaffrey, whose Dragonriders of Pern series is on my comfort shelf.
To make the background, I used the Tim Holtz mini blenders to blend the frayed burlap and faded jeans on the bottom 3/4 of the card base. Then, I spattered water over it to add a dreamy effect.
The words were printed on Neenah 80lb and cut out as per Autumn's inspiration piece.
The bookshelf was stamped on a smaller piece of 80lb Neenah using various distress inks so the stamping wouldn't be too crisp. I added a small plant on the stack on the right to symbolize how books turn the CO2 of life back into oxygen.
The base is Neenah 110lb cardstock, which held up beautifully to all the ink and water spatters.
So this might not look at all like a card I would make given my passion for white space and crisp, clean stamping, but ohmygosh does it capture my absolute and passionate love of and need for books.
Many thanks to Audrie and to Autumn for such a great afternoon of stampy fun!
