This week's challenge is brought to you by A Day For Daisies They are giving away a $12 gift certificate to the winner. Do check them out as I found out they have some adorable free digital stamps. The one I'm using today is Holding Fireflies With Wings.
The theme for this week is Show Thanks And without further ado here is my challenge card.
I remember now why I quit using this yellow card stock for a base. It is much too lightweight. Oh well learn and live.
My sentiment is alphabet stickers which I colored with a dark purple marker and then heat embossed using Recollection Vintage Lilac powder. I stick my letters on a piece of wax paper to color and heat emboss. Since they are sticky but not super sticky I can place them on my project and move them if need be. After I'm pleased with the placement I go ahead and one letter at a time peel up and carefully run a tape runner over the back to give the letters a little extra holding power.
The background was a frame image by Dover Sampler. I took it into PhotoShop and modified the frame so I just had the border on the sides. I also changed the color of the frame as it was blue and white. As well as filled in the center with color. It has been so long since playing in PhotoShop I've forgotten how to do so many things. 😕 However I also had to upgrade my version and some things are different. That's my story and I'm sticking it to it.
I hope you will join in either this challenge or a future one.
Thank you for stopping by and do come back and sit a spell. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
