Gettin' Wild with Mary Anne...

Today Mary Anne Kelemen has created this beautiful, shabby chic sample with "Wild at Heart". She's used the emboss resist technique of embossing the frame on white, then sponging Walnut Stain and Worn Lipstick Distressing inks over the image, filling in the flowers and stems. I love how the brown fades to rose then back to brown again. Aren't these color amazing?Two kinds of lace and delicately patterned paper peep out the sides of the frame on this large square card, and pearls adorn the flower centers. A tiny bow finishes it perfectly.

Now let's go see what else Mary Anne has for us today!
