SCACD Anything Goes #15


I had a stamp that enabled me to play along with the SCACD Friends with Heart Challenge #5 this week. I used the Memory Box silhouette poinsettia for this image, stamping with versamark and embossing with clear detail ep on white cardstock. I sponged the image with Pear Pizazz while it was in the labels 4 die and then sponged the center with some Blue Bayou ink. It's layered with PP and BB cardstocks, and I did the letterpress technique with the background using a floral Impressabilities and PP ink. For the final touch I added some BB ribbon and green & white bakers twine. I'll be putting the sentiment on the inside when there is an occasion to use the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I'll be back soon :)

Carol, This card is beautiful. You did such a great job with the letterpress technique. I find that one to be quite tricky at times, but you've managed to get it just right. I also love the technique you used for your main image. The ribbon and twine look so good together. Another total hit.
