Sentiment as focal point


 Hello, thanks for your visit. Today we begin a new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz.  Claudia has chosen      #173 Sentiment as the focal point. For more details and to see the inspiration by the DT please visit the blog. 

I have a 6"sq. white card, I matted a black card. I watercolour splashed two Oxide Distress inks - Abandoned Coral and Spiced Marmalade. When the watercolour card was dry, I used a stencil to create a more interesting background. The sentiment 'Thanks' was stamped and die cut, adding the stamped 'for everything'. Die cut flowers and leaves added. Yellow pearls added to centre of the flowers. Stasy well and I hope you enjoy the challenge.
