Just Add Ink #23 - Designer Paper

What a crazy all started to go bad on Saturday when I had alot of pain in my jaw - by Monday I was in agony - realising I was experiencing my 2nd toothache in my life. Last time I had this much pain I had a back molar taken out via a dentist who had no bedside manners and didnt care that the woman in his chair was crying her eyes out while the dental nurse had my head in a headlock - 1.5hrs later and 1 stitch later I was less one tooth!!! I dreded the thought of going back to a dentist, especially him, so chose to go the opposite and go Public but was so very blessed to get an emergency appointment and a wonderful, kind-hearted dentist who explained every step of the way. I was just so encouraged by him, so much it has restored my faith in dentists. So again, I left the dentist another tooth gone but no more pain from the absess that had found a home in my mouth - ewwww. I'm such a sook but I dont recommend it at all!!!

Anyway, back to what we're here for....I bought this Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper and thought I'd love it, but when it comes down to using it, I find it soooo hard to use - but this week at Just Add Ink the challenge was "Just Add Designer Paper" so I pulled the papers out and the set that goes with it, Cottage Garden, and tried and tried to make it all work. It's been a slight distraction for me the last few days trying to figure it all out!

I used Crystal Effects on some of the flowers and was surprised to see the colour change so much - turned into a real burgundy....weird...but good I guess.

cardstock: glossy white, old olive, rich razzleberry
ink: rich razzleberry, basic black, orchid opulence
stamps: cottage garden, pocket silhouettes
- rich razzleberry 1/2" polka dot grosgrain ribbon, white gel pen, crystal effects, dimensionals


  1. Oh poor you! I hate dentist's too, although have never had a tooth pulled - shouldn't speak too soon! Love your card, very pretty - can't seem to use my cottage garden dsp either, strange.

  2. This is such a sweet card and I too can relate to your fear of dentists!

  3. Gorgeous card!!!
