This weeks CAS-ual Fridays challenges #43 was to create a card with the sentiment as the focal point.
I almost immediately knew what I wanted to do - unfortunately the gap between 'what I wanted' and 'what came out' was a little wider than I would have liked, but it's close and not terrible for something I've never tried before.
I used a leaf stamp - I can't remember where it's from - masked of a square in the middle and used three different papermania inks, to stamp leaves around the square. I decided against masking the leaves each time as I really wanted the overlap effect of the inks... and finished with a large dovecraft sentiment stamp, inked over with both the green and brown I used with the leaves. It's hard to tell from the picture, but irl you can see the green showing through the brown, giving the text a slightly distressed and more interesting look.
