New Make it Monday Video

Good Monday afternoon to you!  It's my turn for Papertrey's Make it Monday over on Nichole's blog.  This week we are playing around with using sentiments to create subtle, layered backgrounds.  Here's a peek of the project in this week's video.


I just thought I'd pop in and share another card using this same technique.  It's something I've really been enjoying adding to my projects lately and it's really a very simple idea for using some of your stamps in a slightly different way.  I always love that, I don't know about you.


For this card, I used some of the larger script sentiments from Big & Bold Holiday Wishes, along with the "peace" sentiment from Peace Be Still to create the subtle background.  I used the same inking technique around my edges that I showed in the video.  The words in the background were stamped with Grass ink from A Muse Studio, stamped off once, sometimes twice.  The snowflakes are stamped with Currant (also from A Muse) and stamped full power, or stamped off once.  I also included some flourishes from Fancy Flourishes, stamped in the corners using Latte ink.  The main focal sentiment is from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday.



I hope you'll join me and play around with this week's technique!
