Lotstodo - Quotes

The background was brayered using the big n juicy 'waterfall' ink pad.  The quote is from the Tim Holtz 'just thoughts' plate.  The ivy is from the Creative Expressions Scene 'lost garden' plate and the crackle at the bottom is from Tim Holtz 'ultimate grunge' plate.  I used a paint brush to drag some of the ink over the ivy and as some of the ink was still wet I covered it with clear embossing ink and it just caught where it was still wet.

I just love your background Sam - brayering is one of the things I must get to grips with - never been successful.
