Ever make a card and when you're done say something like "I should of done that different?" Well that's my Hand Stamped Sentiments card. First the sketch:
Now my card:
I wanted to create a sun burst behind it. I started pulling Daffodil papers and it seemed too busy, so I stuck with the Polka Dot paper. Each piece was cut, but I wish I had left some more space, or alternated with solid Daffodil. Ugh. I then hand pierced the rays and stitched with baker's twine.
The center is cut from a window framelit. I masked off the dots of the image when I stamped it and embossed it with white emboss powder. I added the banner, again embossing it. I can't believe how against embossing I used to be!
Now head over and see what the other designers have created, and remember you have 2 weeks to play along!
