Old School Love You- CCCCact51, SSC172


When I saw Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge today, So Saffron, Marina Mist, Whisper White, Basic Black and Crumb Cake, I instantly wanted to play! Then when I was poking around blog world I found a challenge blog, new to me, called Stamping 411 and this week they have a simple sketch. So I decided to combine the two and make a card!

Here is what I came up with, Old School Love You. I LOVE water coloring and this stamp set, Greeting Card Kids, is perfect for it!

I stamped the girl using Black StazOn onto Water Color paper and then used my Blender pens and the appropriate colors to color her in. I hand cut the individual letters from the designer series paper pack Newsprint and arranged them on the Water Color paper.

I used the Cracked Glass Technique on the main image to give it more of an "Old School" look.

I added black Satin ribbon, a Crumb Cake button and a little Linen Thread to finish it off!

Thanks for looking!
