Sami has adorable line images...I chose Sunshine Love. This stamp is under 'Baby and Parents', but when I first saw this lovely image, I thought of my girls. I didn't have a sister growing up, but there have been sweet moments I have been privileged to see where my girls have shown each other how wonderful sisters can be. (no worries...I have seen plenty of the other end of family love, too!)
I wanted to keep the image soft, so I printed the image (laser printer) onto watercolor paper (cold press) and watercolored the image and background using Stampin' Up! markers:
Night of Navy
I hadn't used this technique in awhile, but I love the results! The colors mixed and mingled with just a minimal of effort and a heat gun...
Always looking for a way to incorporate a little texture...a little sprinkle of Globecraft & Piccolo Embossing Enamel in Vintage Copper did the trick! Do you see the little bits of green? G&P has the best enamel mixes...
The sentiment is stamped in Jet Black Staz-On on a piece of acetate, layered over the watercolor piece, layered over a backing piece of white cardstock popped up on the card base.
Now it's your turn! Visit the Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog to see what else the design team created - serious inspiration!
