day 3 STAMPlorations spotlight - Fond Expressions 2



Welcome to Day 3 of the STAMPlorations July release Spotlight where it's all about Shery's wonderful sentiment set called FOND EXPRESSIONS 2.  Don't ya love that mix of handwritten plus typewriter fonts?




Created another card for Mom's stash. Tried out my new Zig Clean Color Brush Pens as a watercolor medium and then colored the tiniest heart confetti images from Frames and Flowers using the pens "undiluted" to add interest to the BG. Stamped the sentiment with Archival black ink and adhered the watercolor paper panel to a cardbase. Voila!

Check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here. Leave your comments by August 23rd for a chance at prizes. Five commenters randomly drawn from the designers' blogs will each win the stamp set featured for the day. And one commenter randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog will win a $25 gift certificate!

Happy hopping. See ya tomorrow.
