July 30 Blog Hop ENDS Here!

Hi All!  Here is the final stop on your Blog Hop journey!  And it's Fred's turn to have some eye candy ;)

I used the dark purple peony from the  Corner Peony Coloured Set to frame this Old Testament Blessing.   If you would like this blessing, you are free to take it from this post. ( click on the image below to enlarge then right-click and SAVE).

I used the Big Scalloped Circles nestabilities and sponged/stencilled Antique Linen distress ink on the sentiment.  The gold was brushed on using a mixture of gold and pearl watercolours ( I couldn't decide which to use so I used both LOL).  The backing paper was CB embossed and coloured with distress inks ( dusty concord, spun sugar and a bit of antique linen) and spritzed with homemade glitter mists. I also distressed a small printed Monarch Butterfly. with dusty concord and added stardust pen to the wings and also to the highlights of the peonies.

Now don't forget this one! ;) Here is my special word for your collection :)    Fred!
