Papertrey Ink is having lots of contests for their 4th anniversary. One of them is the "Make it Mondays Challenge." There will be a video posted focusing on a technique & a challenge to recreate it yourself.
The first challenge was to create a "Go-to Sentiment card"
Here's my card:
I used 7 stamp sets for my card! This was the first time YOF: Gladiolus saw some ink :) I stamped it with Versamark ink & embossed it with a mixture of clear embossing powder & ultra fine glitter so it's a bit sparkly IRL (I know you can't tell on this pic :( I masked the portion I was going to leave for the sentiments when I stamped the Gladiolus. I framed the sentiments with a run on my Scor-Pal (another fab Nichole technique). Then I distressed all the edges & finished it up with a few pearls. I have to admit it was quite challenging to try to arrange all the stamps so they would fit around the main sentiment & some are a bit crooked :( grrr. But I liked the technique.
I look forward to more Make it Mondays Challenges! It's always fun to learn new techniques & different ways to use our goodies.
Thanks so much for peeking today!
