Curvy Thanks

Hi!  I had the day off work today and after doing a bit of shopping, I spent some time in my craft room making cards.  This card was made for a few challenges:  Tic Tac Toe (yellow, ink splatters, scalloped border),Can You Case It's sketch and Addicted to CAS's Petals theme.


I rotated the sketch and moved the panel up slightly (hope that's okay!).  I started with some watercolor paper and I sponged on some Squeezed Lemonade ink, keeping it darker on the right hand side.  I also added some Scattered Straw to the right hand side.  Before I die-cut it, I splattered on some Scattered Straw ink, using some liquid Perfect Pearls to dilute the ink slightly.

I adhered a black strip to the top and also behind the word to make it pop and then popped the whole lot up on foam tape.  Finally I adhered a stamped flower that I had left over from another project, also using foam tape.  The flower was painted with clear Wink of Stella.


Thanks for visiting.
