Experiment -- Light on Dark

Just a little something for the husband --



This was an experiment -- to see if a light sentiment would work over a darker background.  Perhaps this wold work better with the colors reversed, but I kind of like the unexpected neon pink over gray.  And, it works anyway because I "really" love the husband!

How I Made This Card:

1.  Tore 2 sheets of typing paper to make a mask -- two because the Hero Arts granite ink bleeds through one sheet.
2.  Placed the Screen stamp face up on my table and inked.   Put the torn paper on the top third of the stamp and pressed a card onto the stamp.
3.  Stamped the sentiment.
4.  Done and done.
5.  Oh, stamped the envelope liner and die cut.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Accomplished


Supplies:

Stamps:  Impression Obsession Screen Cover a Card and Avery Elle Handwritten Sentiments
Paper:  Neenah Solar White
Ink: Hero Arts Soft Granite and Neon Pink
Other:  paper trimmer, typing paper -- that's it!
