Warm Wishes - WPlus9 Mood Board and SSS CAS challenges



I'm playing along with the WPlus9 Mood Board again today.

I loved the kraft, white ink, and the soft blue colors from the mood board and this is what I came up with.


I used one of my first WPlus9 sets:  Hope Seed Co.  The frame was stamped on cardstock and then fussy cut.  I used a pencil to mark the inside of the frame on my base and then stamped the flower image inside.  The flower was colored using a water brush and Twilight and Olive inks.  I love this technique.  It's so forgiving.  You really don't have to be an artist, and it still looks great.


I stamped the sentiment just above the flower image and the banner on a separate piece of cardstock and fussy cut it.

The frame was mounted with one layer of foam tape and the banner with two layers.

I tried some different trims on the bottom.  I wanted white, but they all looked too  bright, so I ended up coloring some kraft cardstock with my white inkpad and then cutting off a thin strip.  The cord is Lawn Fawn.

Pretty CAS, so I'm linking this up with this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp also.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
