All About The Sentiment

Good morning all and welcome to a new Challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog..

The new Theme is is All About The Sentiment and is hosted by my lovely friend Annie....and sponsored by Marianne Designs...

Here is what I came up with.

I do love this sentiment by Claritystamps.

I started by stamping the floral crook stamp from Clarity ...

Then using my eBosser and the Die from Marianne Dies LR0279, I cut out the shape....


Added some colour with my Clarity Stencil brush,


sail Boat Blue, this is what I got...


Also did you notice a Clarity Stencil made an appearance too..

Now to the Gelli card....a sun mask , and some background...

Next texture was added using the script stamp from the Journalling stamp set...

The sentiment...

Some colouring with the fantastic Spectrum Noir pencils....oh and the swallow from the Journalling set too...he just had to be stamped and coloured in.

Then I added colour to the sun, some ribbon and assembled the card....

I do hope that you like it....and that you feel inspired to enter our challenge....we would love you too...

I am really hoping that this post has appeared on Friday morning as I am writing it on Tuesday morning before going down to the Clarity Retreat for two days...

So hoping that it is Friday....have a good weekend ....

Much love and hugs
