Ok, so this challenge was super hard for me! I was doing okay until I got to the sentiment. I stamped "Cherish" and then I realized I needed a second sentiment. I tried to stamp just the word "Life", but the rest of the sentiment appeared a little on my paper. I had tried to wipe off all the extra ink on the sentiment. The full sentiment is "life is a matter of moments". I don't really do re-dos, so I found something to cover up my boo-boo. I have two image stamps. Two types of white paper. Two colors of ink. Two colors of chalk. Two sentiments and two pieces of patterned paper.

I would never have known that the corner wasn't part of your original design. My favourite way of partially inking a sentiment is to put sellotape as a mask over the part I don't want to ink - then ink the whole thing and pull the tape off. So long as the stamp is clean (not always true for me!!) then you're good to go.
