This week's Make It Monday was about Selective Inking ... just inking part of a stamp. The tutorial focus was taking a 2 line sentiment and making it into a one liner. You can also do the reverse and and take a long 1 line sentiment and make it 2 lines. Lots of applications for this technique for sure!
Here's my card:
My oldest niece is having her first baby in July and she and her husband are quite ecstatic! There wedding was in a celery green with chocolate brown accents. As a Christmas gift I scrapbooked their wedding weekend in celery green and brown. And now that's the baby shower colors too!
I used the Argyle Impression Plate for the background layer. I created the plaid layer using Ribbon Tails and Background Basics: Retro in Certainly Celery, Delightful Daffodil and Chocolate Chip.
I used Fillable Frames #8 for the sentiment layer. The sentiment itself is from Mega Mixed Messages and started out life as a 2 line stamp.
I added added some Spring Moss buttons tied with dark chocolate bakers twine to the sentiment layer to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by!
