An Awesome Case


I had a little scrap panel left over from a project that I was making (more of that on Monday), and was twisting it this way and that, when this card of Maria's sprang to mind:

I loved the sprinkle of stars swooshing across the card.  I'd already stamped ringmarks on my little panel, so I thought I'd extend them above and below the panel and stamp the sentiment in line with the panel.

I love the grungy Hashtag Authentic set from STAMPlorations.  I've teamed it with words from Sentiment Builders: Love and Sentiment Builders: Happy.  The ringmarks and splatter mark are from    Holiday Artsy and the square is from Retro Mod Shapes with a Posca pen scribbled frill.

I'm entering this into Virginia's View, Clean Slate:

  14. I love how you were inspired. I love how you angled the panel and then the bold, black ringlets running off the edges gives it such interest.
