Allsorts Challenge 514: Sentiment in Focus

Hello and welcome! Happy Saturday! It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge, hope you can join us this week. Helene is hosting this week with the theme of "Sentiment is Focus" and we're giving away a great sentiment stamp set by Bee Crafty.

This card was an easy and quick one to make. I already had the ink "smooched" background from a previous project. So then all I had to do was stamp the sentiment and brushstroke flowers using my Tonic Stamp Platform. I stamped the flowers (Penny Black Blossom Branch) using Spun Sugar  and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I wanted to keep the flowers in the background to fit our theme better, so I didn't bother inking it up again, although it might have been a good idea to do so and could have easily be done with my Stamp Platform. But by the time I noticed it that it needed re-stamped, I had already removed the card. (I really need go get some re-inkers then this wouldn't have happened!! Or I should have I used my Distress Markers instead!)

The sentiment from the Penny Black set Happy Wishes was stamped using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. I love the crips impression this ink gives. The script background stamp I used with Spun Sugar ink is an oldie but goodie from stampin Up - French Script. I carried this script over onto the card base. Before adhering the image panel onto the card base I inked up the edges with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink and distressed the edges.

  2. I think the faded stamping on the flowers is absolutely perfect, with more ink they might have taken over and made the text hard to read.

    1. Thanks so much Helene. Just wish the inkpad was juicier, but I agree a second stamping might have taken away too much from the sentiment.
