Hey friends! I'm back with another encouragement card, my favorite kind to create. I had this idea in my head as soon as I saw the brand new April Stamp of the Month, Friendship is a Blessing.
I started by die cutting my black and white layering pieces with dies from Gina Marie Designs. I stamped the image from Blessings in Disguise on Canson XL watercolor paper with VersaFine Clair Nocture ink. I colored the flower with Arteza Real Brush Pens
(light magenta, crocodile green, sunset yellow) and fussy cut out. I
dug deep in my stash to find a four square stencil. I centered it on the
white panel and sponged with Bashful Blue ink. Which really isn't so
bashful after a few layers. For the words, I used a combination of
sentiments from the above stamp sets and Sweet Little Lamb.
I stamped them in the same black ink as the flower. I had to mask off
part of the sentiment from Sweet Little Lamb so I could just use the
"You are a" part. Then, I assembled the card and popped the flower up
for some dimension.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
