Leafy Hello


I love the fact that UK/Ireland stampers have the chance to
 order some of the most fabulous brands on the market through
the on-line store Make the Day Special !
Here's a card created for their blog challenge this month which is a sketch:

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-CHmwDxzLKto/VMqdaKjdTwI/AAAAAAAAHlE/NLhxa1Knk1c/s1600/sketch1.jpg 

I sponged Ranger Distress Shabby Shutters ink on both sides for  
the sketch background, then added some stenciling and stamping with 
Visible Image Ink Splats. I also added some spritzing with a a
paintbrush and Distress Ink. The "hello" is die-cut using
the FABULUOUS Wplus9 Hand Lettered Hello
which is one of my most used dies, available at MTDS store.  
It's cut with shiny gold foil card, along with the palm branches
 using a Hero Arts die.I added some gold sequins and
green/blue rhinestones to finish.The whole card is
made on thick watercolor paper for a rich texture.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
