House of Cards April 2016 Challenge

Sorry friends, haven't been around much.

However, I'm back!!!! Boy, have I missed crafting.

It's the start of another month, so it's time for another challenge at House of Cards 

Here's is this month's challenge

Use Script and/or Colors
 


Here's my card





I tried to incorporate both "Script and Colors".  I started by tearing a couple pieces of 3M Post-it Tape length-wise as I wanted to mask off an area with irregular edges. Using Stampin Up's French Script stamp and Simon Says STAMP fog ink, I stamped in the masked off area. Using the same ink and a sponge, I "darkened" the edges of the masked off area. I was going for a subtle look for the script - well, I got subtle and it doesn't photograph very well (or is it the photographer?). Here's a close-up


I used this SU stamp (not sure which stamp set)


I coloured this stamp with markers - Stampin Up - Primrose Petals and Cherry Cobbler and Distress Marker - Mowed Lawn.

The sentiment is from this Simon Says STAMP stamp set




Hope you can join us this month at House of Cards
