I hope you guys are all having a good week. It's only Monday, but so far so good I suppose. We're having some Middle School issues, but I am trying to NOT focus too hard on it. I know that kids will be kids, but they're just SO different from when I grew up. Do you guys feel that way?
Anyway, so today's card is really neat, I think. As you more than likely know, February marks Papertrey Ink's 4th anniversary. This is my first time being a part of the celebration, but I will say it rocks! Check out Nichole's blog for more info on all of the happenings. Today through Monday, there is a contest to make a card that uses a combination of similar sentiments. They will have a contest every Monday..it's their Make It Monday Challenge. Read all about it here: Make it Monday
I am also using this week's Curtain Call Challenge colors, seen here:
Aren't they gorgeous together? Like a nice Spring bouquet. So, here is the card that was born of these two challenges:
I decided to use 1 stamp set - my favorite "Healing Touch" from Papertrey - but to take all of the shorter sentiments and stamp them repeatedly as a background of sorts. It came out just as I had imagined it. I stamped it in Versamark and then embossed it with white embossing powder. I added some pearls (of course!), a flower/leaf and a little shading on the circle. That reminds me. People have asked a few times how I shade my circles. Well, I don't use a Copic Airbrush system. I just keep the diecut shape in the nestie and take a sponge and circle around the edges with whatever ink I choose. Super simple! :)
Well, that's all I have today. Have a good one! Laters!
