Anyway, on to this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge! This week the challenge is:
I went with the recycling type of 'green':
I used a strip of paper that I made myself using scraps blended into pulp and dried on a mesh frame that my husband made for me. I tore the edges along a ruler to make them straight(ish). The rest of the card is made of kraft (recycled brown cardstock) which I sponged around the edges with Walnut Stain and Old Paper distress inks to give it an aged appearance. I used Old Paper distress ink on the edges of my homemade paper to soften the edges and help it blend in with the kraft background.
I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink which gives it that tone on tone look that I love.
You can see what the rest of the Sentimental Sundays team have created this week at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog. You have until next Sunday to submit your entry if you decide to play along, and the random winner will receive four individual sets of digital sentiments from Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection, and a custom watermark from the Custom Designs at Whimsy Stamps!
