The House That Stamps Built: Pick of the Week

It's my turn for POTW (Pick of the Week) At The House That Stamps Built
and I am going to show how to create a simple sentiment strip on your card.

You will need white card stock, a strip of Washi tape, a background stamp,
a sentiment, ink of choice, a MISTI if available.

Mark off a strip about 2 " down from the top with Washi tape, first 
press the Washi tape down on your pants or shirt a couple time 
(ask me why I say this!)

Ink up your background stamp, I used Repeat Impressions
Flower Power Background, and Memento  Lulu Lavender,
Lilac Posies and Sweet Plum for an ombre look:

I used a scrap of vellum to get my placement just right.

Embellish as desired, I used clear Epoxy dots.

Wendy is offering a 20% discount on the stamps I used,

That's a cool technique and a very pretty card! I love the way you did the sentiment panel in the midst of those pretty flower outlines!

There is something so wonderfully soothing and serene about this timeless design. It really resonates with me (and my summer heat frazzled brain 😄).
