Today's challenge to use our 'favorite things' came along at just the perfect time. However, I'd have to make at least ten cards to include ALL my favorite things. Suffice it to say that my favorite things are making cards and making them for the church Card Ministry.
This card includes 7 of my favorite things:
1. Discovering / learning a new technique
4. Encouraging sentiments
6. New stamps or other products
7. Sponging / inking edges
I let the dp do most of the work here, so it's CAS. But I discovered something neat about this paper that has a sheen in the bg with 'flat' floral designs. I was wondering if I could stamp on it, but didn't have a scrap to practice on. I stamped, and it didn't work; it looked wet, so I tried to wipe it off; and WOW the ink stuck to the 'flat' spots as I wiped it away from the sheen. It's instant resist paper!!! So I inked direct-to-paper the whole panel and wiped it with an almost-dry wet wipe. And I love the effect, so I made six more for the card ministry.
I wanted the sentiment to be small, so instead of using Scripture, which is another favorite thing, I chose a new stamp with a sentiment that would fit on the SU oval punch, and I inked the edges of the oval.
