This week's CAS challenge over at Splitcoaststampers is "Friendship". I have some great sentiment stamps for this so ended up making two cards. The first one uses the sentiment as its focal image.
The background behind the sentiment was made by using a technique with
ink-saturated paper towel (saved from clean-up for other projects and
dried). Loll Thompson showed me the technique and she has instructions
The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed, and allowed to take centre
stage inside an embossing folder border. I love what the sentiment says
about having a friend, and I love the great font it has.
The second card has an image and another friendship sentiment, this time a quote by Charles Dickens.
I stamped my image inside a section of an embossed piece of cs. I like the old-fashioned look of it so coloured
it lightly with coloured pencils as if it were faded. It's popped it up on fun foam. The
sentiment is cut out with a label die cut.
Thanks for stopping by today!
