TLC challenge on SCS. Joan challenged us to create a "large stamp image" by combining various sentiment stamps around a common theme, stamping them in different colors and making that the focal image for our card. I first thought... oh that will be hard! I will admit that lining things up straight is a challenge and I certainly didn't get that perfect, but it still was fun and opened up my mind to a whole new way of using my sentiment stamps!
I used the following ODBD stamps to create this sentiment panel: Strawberries, Strawberries and Pickles, Blue Ribbon Winner and Garden Sentiments. I also used
this month's custom die for ODBD by SB, Fancy Foliage .
The lattice is Cheery Lynn, and the dp is Recollections. I used Regal
Rose, Real Red, Certainly Celery, and Old Olive for my sentiment colors.
This is pretty CAS I guess, but I wanted the sentiments to take center stage. I hope you'll consider this technique some time as it really is fun and these large sentiment stamps are very trendy now, but we don't all have stamps like that, so making our own is a great idea!
A Word for today:
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." Col.3:23
