I Heart You

Thursday, August 29, 2013

I received a few of the latest new Avery Elle stamps and dies in the mail yesterday.  They arrived just in time to enter the latest AEI♥U Challenge, which is ending soon. This month, the challenge is a sketch done by the talented Nina Yang.
I created this card using the "Aim High" stamps and dies.  I *LOVE* those dies!  I am still going through my love of water color phase, so I painted the sentiment background with my paints.  I tried to match it with that lovely ombre paper from the Glitz "Finnley" 6x6 paper pad. This was pretty easy to do, since I haven't cleaned up my desk in ages, so all the supplies were already right in front of me.  Please tell me that I'm not the only one who creates a HUGE mess while constructing one little project.  Anyway....I had a fun afternoon. :) Tomorrow, I need to clean.  Really bad.
