None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

To the Moon and Back!

Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and fans the bonfire.
François VI de la Rochefoucault

Good morning! 
Today I leave for Japan to see my daughter whom I've not been able to hug in well over two years. I am sooooo excited!

I made this card for my husband to let him know that I love him and will miss him while I am gone. Even more so since he just returned from California where he and the crew he works with were assigned to help with the wildfires there.


The technique for this A2  card is messy but fun using glossy paper, reinkers and alcohol.
Since I'm working on a tutorial for Through the Craft Room Door I am unable to give out more details at this time.

Other supplies are:
Cardstock & Glossy Paper from Stampin Up!
Metallic Copper paper from paper Temptress
Heart button from my stash
Black India India Ink from Memories
Sentiment from Studio G
Circle dies from Sizzix

Thanks for visiting!
(Hugs) Cara

Gorgeous background. Exactly the kind I love to make with Dylusions and other sprays. Just ordered some different kinds of sprays from Joggles, can't wait to try them out. Fantastic that you're doing a tutorial, and hope you will share a link to it, when it's published. TFS & Hgus

Hi cara, this card is beautiful. Love this style. I have spent many aday making up backgrounds with the alcohol inks and glossy cardstock but never achieved the depth of colour you have on your card. Just beautiful.

Okay, you are going to think I am crazy, but I think behind your smoochy ink I see a hamburger? LOLOL Maybe not but the smooching looks wonderful and love what you did with the sentiment and heart too!
