Take a moment to Remember - Creative with Stamps #7

Saturday October 1, 2016
Woo hoo the end of this month I am retiring and I am so looking forward to this new chapter in my life. I have no big plans just being able to sleep in longer than 5:30am.. LOL
Remember to use stamps / digi's on your card and you can enter 3 times plus the challenge is for a month so that gives you plenty of time to get your cards over there.

This is my card I made for the Sentiment challenge.  I used the stamp set from Paper Trey ink.. I embossed the sentiment in black and the ginkgo leaves in clear.. then used Ranger inks and sponged the colors on. I dropped water on the piece to get some spots and give more of a texture look to the piece. I then cut them apart and cut a little off each piece then used foam tape and applied to the black. I then added some sequins. I love the look.  Hope I encourage or inspired you to play along.

This card is absolutely gorgeous! I love all the detail you put into the background with the varying shades of green and the lovely water-splotch technique. The sentiment looks perfect and I love the way the black stands out against the brighter background. The white leaves are so elegant and the sequins give it a wonderful touch of bling! You did an incredible job on this and it was such a treat to see! Thanks for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
