Sweet 'n Sassy Release Celebration - Inspirational Word Art

Welcome to DAY 3 of our February Release Blog Hops!

Today the DT is thrilled to share the new Inspirational Word Art with you.  This 4"x6" set includes 6 inspiring sentiments that are sure to encourage any recipient and go nicely with any stamps you already own.  This set is the first in it's series!

For my card,  I took all of the sentiments from the set and laid them out on a card, in a pattern that would fill my piece of cardstock.  Once the design was set, I pick up all of the stamps at once with a stamp press (if you don't have one of these...you need one!)  I stamped the sentiments on the cardstock and then embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I grabbed my watercolors and scribbled some colors all over the card.  The embossing resists the paint!  I added a main sentiment, some bling, and another darling butterfly (left over from yesterday's card!)

Check out the full set and links to the rest of the DT's creations below!
   


 Key sentiment measures approximately 1.75" x 2"
