Miss You

Hi there!!

Well we ended up getting 3 inches and breaking the record! So now that winter had its last gasp i hope spring will actually stick around!! Today's card uses stencils and i have been think about this card for awahile! In fact i had planned to use another part of the stencil, it was all planned in my head but totally forgot when i actually made the card! Regardless i love how it turned out!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps

To start i cut a panel of watercolor paper (ended up using the rough side that i though was the smooth side!!). I placed my stencil over the paper and used 2 yellow distress inks to color in the stencil. When that was done i flipped the stencil over and down a little and used 2 orange distress inks. I did it again and used red distress inks.

I had a little strip left at the bottom, so i added the black strip, felt it really helped ground the panel. I then stamped the Miss You word bubble from The Alley Way Stamps Spell Check set. I cut it out and adhered it to my card base with foam tape!
