Happy, happy Saturday!! I'm late with my post and hope you can forgive me! Anyway, Nancy has a great challenge for Wild Card week -Make your SENTIMENT the focal point of your card front! This is something I seldom do, so it was a challenge, indeed! But FUN!
I've used this great birthday sentiment from Mama Elephant-I've seen it lots of places and took inspiration from other cards I've seen.
First, I rubbed water color paper with my embossing buddy. Then, I stamped the XL sentiment on water color paper in Versamark, covered it with white embossing powder and heated. After that I used my water brush and NEW Koi Water Colors to sweep some color across my paper, blending colors as I went. I let that that dry. This morning I cut it out with MFT jumbo banner stax (coming out soon with stitched edges!! Oh, my, something else I need!)
I knew it needed something else, so I pulled out two colors of twine and put those around my card front. That will add a little interest to the inside, too!
We all hope you'll join in this week and show us your cards! You have until Thursday, Feb. 5 at 9 pm to link up your card/project. There's tons of inspiration on our BLOG, which is linked HERE!
Thanks for visiting!!
Have a great day!
