Make It Monday #22 and CR84FN33



 Hi folks!  I really liked the Make It Monday technique for this week, featuring multi-color stamping with ink refills, and it occurred to me that this would be a great way to ink the separate words of a group of sentiment stamps in a repetitive way.  For this card I also used the colors from CR84FN33 challenge:  red, pink, and neutral.



I decided to make a Thank You card--can always use more of those.  I gathered all the appropriate sentiments from several PTI sets--Wonderfully Whimsical, Mega Mixed Messages, Vintage Picnic, Quilter's Sampler--and stuck them to an acrylic block in the desired arrangement.  Stamped on white craft foam with Memento Tuxedo Black (turned out to be a bad idea, the ink didn't dry and slightly contaminated the pinks and reds later), then inked the foam with SU Real Red and Pixie Pink:

I actually stamped several of these, thinking it would be an easy way to make a set, and although I will still probably use the rest of them this way, the embellishment of the card was too time-consuming to make a bunch of them.  The oval frame was cut from red craft foam using Spellbinders petite oval and petite scalloped oval dies, then white beads were stitched on at each scallop.  The cotton/rayon lace was attached to the back with Scor-Tape.  The pink patterned paper came from a K & Co stack.

Thanks for looking, and have a nice day!
