The Alphabet Challenge has reached the letter ‘M’ – and Melanie has chosen the theme of ‘Motivational or encouraging sentiment‘. Here is my card:
I am sure you know someone who would appreciate an encouragement card. There have been quite a few – from my side of things at least – that deserve that little more recognition from me. I always try to express those thoughts in person, but sometimes a little something-something can add and boost their confidence.
I have a team in mind for this card, and will be taking it to them shortly.
I again used the new Tim Holtz Mica sprays for this card – after I had stamped the image from Polkadoodles. I may repeat this card again and this time heat embossing the image, but for this I like the overall effect.
I did go back in with some clean water on some of the flower images to ‘lift’ some of the spray to make them more visible……
The image is so much more visible in real life – and those mica sprays have so much shine – but I just can’t seem to capture them on a photo…….!
As this stamp is so long, I went for the slimline style, but I did cut it down on one edge, and left a border of black instead of centering it in the middle – I like how that seems to make it more dramatic.
I hope you can join us with your encouraging sentiments – I am sure they will be appreciated by the recipient. xx
