Hello friends. Playing along with this weeks Make It Monday challenge where Ashley shows a great way to make a shadow under your sentiment using a emboss resist technique! I love how Ashley's yellow blended background really made her sentiment pop, so I copied just a teeny bit and came up with this:
Strawberries come out in June here in Michigan, but I hadn't taken the time to get this sweet set out (Strawberry Patch) and use it yet this summer, so this seemed like a great opportunity to stamp with it! The "sweet" sentiment in the Strawberry Patch set isn't that big, so I substituted the "sweet" from the Sweet Holiday Wishes set and embossed in black and then offset and clear embossed the "sweet" again. I blended my background with Bright Buttercup ink and also added a banner with "summertime" embossed in white. I used my MISTI to stamp the strawberries, leaves and flowers so I could add a little shading. I fussy cut along the top and then added some foam to the back before adhering to my card base. Here's a closer up:
I finished with an enamel dot, some sequins and bakers twine, and it definitely looks like a summertime card to me!!
You've still got a couple days to play along, so check out Ashley's fabulous card and video and then play along right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
