My Sheri Crafts Challenge #164 - Long Time No See....

Raquel chose this week's theme over at My Sheri Crafts Challenge where all you have to do is create any project that falls into the category of: hello, thinking of you, miss you, wish you were here.

I think this sentiment from JustRite Grand Handwritten Sentiments was perfect for this one! And I {heart} this Tropical Punch paper from Kaisercraft too!
I think a handwritten card is so thoughtful. I challenge everyone to send someone they have lost touch with lately a simple card and let them know you are thinking of them!!

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - JustRite Fern Stamp

I'm a day early this week and also next week but then I will be back to my regularly scheduled Tuesdays. Today over at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store blog I am showing how to create two different looks with the same stamp! The first one is a Watercolor Technique that almost went into the trash! In the end I thought it was pretty cool and deserved to be placed in this nice little 5x7" frame. What a happy accident!?!

I tend to lean more towards crisp and clean look on my cards but every now and then I "try" to do a different technique that I've seen others doing (I'm not sure it's really my thing but I try). I started with Watercolor Paper and sponged it all over with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Peeled Paint. Then I spritzed the paper and let dry a little before stamping the Fern image in the same color. I didn't really think it was dark enough so I tried to stamp it again in the same place with the darker Forest Moss ink. It wasn't "exactly" aligned so it looks a bit fuzzy. I thought it wouldn't be a very good representation of the stamp quality so I did a few other tests on other papers and then ultimately settled on a more CAS look - go figure...

For the birthday card, I simply stamped the fern all around the edges with the 2 different colors and put the Extra Grand Sentiment at the top - it couldn't get any easier than that!
