The new challenge #59 at Simply Create Too is a good one. For me at least. Make a card without using a digi or stamped image. Hmmm.
So I dabbed some alcohol ink onto recycled acetate over a mask - Kesi Art Fleuri - and then using a Sharpie and a kids' alpha stencil (from a cereal box I believe!) I lettered the "sweet" onto the front side. Adhered the acetate hiding the tape under the "16". And for that I found a font I liked here and printed it on scrap paper as a mirror image. Then on the reverse I adhered strips of washi. Fussy cut the numerals and adhered them with foam adhesive. TIP: Flip the "1" over to mix up the patterns a little. Of course I didn't plan it that way, but liked it better when it "happened" ;))
DD is turning 16 this year - either she will get this (but she's not really "an orange person") or one of her girlfriends.
Thanks for coming by - now put away those stamps, put on your thinking cap and simply create, too!
