Getting Sentimental

Hello there everybody!

This week at My Heart Pieces Priyanka challenged us to use a sentiment.  I had been feeling sentimental about this image as it reminded me of my dad.  So 'Summer Fun' was selected.  (of course it helps that I ADORE giraffes!)

This stamp was purchased a while ago and has not been used up to now!  This sentiment is what I try to live by.  Work is important, but playing each day at something you love is vital!  This image was coloured with watercolour crayons and a water brush, then cut out with Spellbinders Labels 28. I used distress ink to colour the edges and then glossy accents to make the bottle and balloon pop.  I placed a piece of giraffe printed paper on the 5.5x6" kraft card base, then ran two printed ribbons down the left.  I then adhered my cut out image.

This image was also coloured with watercolour crayons and a waterbrush then accented with glossy accents.  I cut out a mask of the image to cover my image while I added the green grass and blue sky.  I also trimmed around the balloon a bit to make it pop out from behind the mat.  The card is a 5.5 x 6.6" window card from Magenta.  Versamark and a number collage stamp from Judikins tamped around the mat to give it dimension.  I used Spellbinders Fancy Tags Dies to cut out thin cork for the greeting.  Greeting is by Magenta too.  Some scrap mesh paper and cork stickers finish it all off! 
So dig out some of those sentiment stamps and get 'sentimental'!
