As soon as I woke up this morning I can to the computer to check for today’s challenge at Smudgy Antics. We are challenged to use just words. No image. I first though this would be hard, but, that’s what challenges are for, right?! So I went back to bed and instantly remembered my Quoth the Raven set from Smeared Ink. After about an hour I got up for real. Sparing the details, here is what I came up with.
I masked off the black card stock so it wouldn’t have anything in the embossed area. I used white embossing powder over versamark. All the stamps but one are from the Quoth the Raven set. The library card stamp is from Stampin’ Up! I hand wrote the main sentiment because this is what I wanted the greeting to say and there was not stamp. I used pop dots under it. I used various punches to back the sentiment, added satin ribbon and a string of black bling. I think it is amazing what can actually be accomplished with just words.
