Hello friends!! I'm so glad you stopped in again today. The Power Poppy Bloom Brigade is featuring Big Scripts today that are all handwritten by Marcella herself. They are super fun and can add just the right amount of punch to any project. Now, I stepped WAY OUT of my comfort zone today and went with a CAS graphic feel. I tell you, these cards take me a ton more time to make than my detailed vintage ones. Seriously. I am happy with how this simple little "hello" turned out though.
I decided a conversation bubble would be kind of fun as a frame, so I created one in Word, printed it out on copy paper, cut it out and traced it onto cardstock...only because my printer HATES heavy card stock. It has quite the attitude and spits it out at me every time. The nerve...I tell ya! After stamping "hello" in the bubble, I just added a bit of doodling around the border.
Lastly, I splattered some acrylic paint in the background, embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder and added some Twine and Enamel Dots.
