Beautiful Life, Blessed Memories

I’m inking up the new sentiment kit for this month’s {Be Inspired} challenge.  There are a variety of different sentiments to choose from.  Many can be used for the front or inside of cards depending on what you’d like to say.

I started out with embossing the heart and sentiment on vellum.  I tried out tons of different patterned paper to put underneath.  So many were too bold or busy and made it hard to see the sentiment.  So, I used some watercolor to create the blue-green background paper.  Much softer.  I was too impatient to let the watercolor paper dry completely so I sewed the vellum on.  It puckered in an interesting way and I kinda love it.  It is puffy and crinkly in a cool soft way.  I think I’m going to play around with this idea again and create a set in different colors with different sentiments in the set.

Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog today.
We’ll be giving away 2 prizes from comments left on the participating blogs.

Here are all the girls hopping today…  just click on the next pretty girl in line.
