For the challenge, I created a page that I rarely make....one with me on it. I hardly ever get on the other side of the camera, but I'm trying to do it more often. Here's what I came up with:
I layered a piece of Baja Breeze on top of this but it was to "neat" for the look I was going with so out came the water bottle. I lightly sprayed both sides of the card stock with water and wrinkled with my hands. Once it was almost dried, I took my Very Vanilla ink pad and dabbed it on along with my Suede sponge.
Other than the picture, the other big page detail is the definition of love. love is from the Timeless Type dies along with the heart from the Heart to Heart punch. I traced around the letters with my Suede marker because I wanted it to stand out. I stamped the heart with a stamp from the PS I Love You set. I also used this stamp also on Very Vanilla card stock with Peach ink and a sentiment from the set with Suede ink. I didn't have the right heart punch, however I have the Hearts Collection framelit dies....crisis averted. -noun and also the brackets are from the Billboard strip. I cut a strip of So Saffron and wrote the definition with my Soft Suede marker and cut it into pieces.
I added a strip of textured Pear card stock behind the Baja layer. On top of that I layered a piece of Baja Seam Binding ribbon and Victoria Crochet Trim. I tied on a Vintage Tag that I wrote the date on. Lastly, I added a few "stitches" with twine and my mat pack.
Now go over and check out the rest of the design team at Hand Stamped Sentiments. There is major talent and I'm humbled to be on this team. We have a new challenge every Tuesday and I'd love to see what you can create!
