WMSFC - Theme ...

.... Hi again!  I'm back with our new challenge for Waltzingmouse Fanatics.  This time we have a theme for you to play with.  Typography is a hot trend at the moment, and Claire's stamps contain some of the most wonderful sentiments and in lots of pretty fonts.  We would like your project to contain sentiments from AT LEAST TWO different sets of stamps.  I've made a thank you card - with lots of thanks!!

Stamps: WMS - Fine Feathers, Charm Squares, Funky Feathers, Teeny Trees, Big Day-Today, Asian Gardens, Victorian Frippery, Ocean Bound, Country Labels 4, Say It Loud
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Primrose Petals, Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, River Rock, Basic Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - River Rock; SU Ribbon - Calypso Coral; SU DP - River Rock


I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#130 and the colours from Colour Q - cQc#235.  I cut a small panel of white card and then laid out all the thank you stamps to work out the best pattern pressed down my Fiskars stamp holder to keep them in the same position.  I did try to use my markers to colour the sentiments, but it wasn't very nice, so I stamped this in stages.  I used masking tape to cover some stamps inked up and then stamped, and repeated with all the colours.  I finished the front with a mock button and a ribbon.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper and added a simple sentiment in the corner, leaving me enough space for a message.

For more inspiration with our texty theme, don't forget to check out Tara's card.  As always you can make any project you like, but you MUST use at least TWO sentiments from different WMS sets.  The deadline for submission is Thursday 17th April, 5.00pm (Noon EDT).  Looking forward to seeing what you make!  Have a good weekend.

Wow, Deb, I like how you stamped all your words in various colours. Red and aqua always work so well together. And the inside corner sentiment is the perfect finishing touch.
