Ok here is another card for challenge #74 Hand Written Sentiment at 365 Cards. I know most of us are not crazy about our own penmanship but this challenge required that we hand write the sentiment. I decided to write mine on a tag in case I made a mistake or just plain did not like it. Needless to say I went through a few tags and I still am not sure about this one.
This card reminds me of a technique that was all the rage awhile back called Collage Montage. My background is done with crayons yes crayons and then you cover your card with a paper towel and use a dry hot iron to remove all the wax and what you are left with is just the pigment from the crayons. Removing the wax makes it possible to stamp over the colors. You can find the video tutorial along with ideas here http://heroarts.com/blogs/club/2009/05/13/dots-happybirthday/. This technique was fun and I will try it again with some other shapes and colors. The stamps are from Inkadinkado Flourishes set and Garden Delight set.
