IO Hobby challenge

  SUNSHINE this morning!!! Although we will be back to rain by late afternoon or early evening which is sposed to last through late monday night....
   Miss Kyna - my puppy - took me for an hour walk and then some play time in the yard too boot - she had lotsa energy this morning :)
   Well the current challenge over at the IO blog is 'What's your hobby' and my first thought was 'Which one?' :) Rubber stamping, encaustic wax, locker hook, crossstich, knitting, sewing, beading, clay, scrapbooking, blogging,  painting, glass etching, or anything that  looks fun.....well Rubber stamping is the biggest one - and I use rubber stamps when I am painting, beading, clay, with encaustic and glass etching too so I guess that is what I will show you today - and IO stamps made that very easy :)
(I dont do much crosstitch, sewing or knitting anymore but ever so often - and there are a few projects set aside for those hobbies, for when i can find time...)
   This card was done with 2 stamps from IO - H8889 Wild sweetheart rose and D1383 Predict the fucture. I stamped the rose onto watercolor paper and used my watercolors and then embossed the phrase with vintage photo distress powder. I cut the main image with a Spellbinders die and edged it with Walnut stain and tea dye distress inks. I used some vintagey looking paper and lastly added some bronze pearls with a Viva decor pen.
  Check out the challenge here -
    All for today - kids are both working this afternoon and DH is hanging out with the Nascar crowd so back to the craft room I go - all my windows and doors open, sunshine and a nice breeze wafting through the house :) I should probably do some house cleaning....
   Take Care

The DP does have a vintage feel to it and it looks great behind the beautiful flower. Great sentiment! Shirley
