Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge
I saw this picture and at first it was where do go with that? After looking at Jennifer Mullen's card which I thought was terrific, I was so motivated to create (thank you!!). I went with a die cut thanks in black. I started out with a piece of neon yellow paper and used a distress marker (Tim Holtz, Spiced Marmalade) colored it up then blended it with water to give some intense) I put the thanks die inside the circle die taped it securely then taped to the paper. Only then cutting down to the bottom of letters. Carefully remove the pieces and trim as needed. Then for added dimension do another die cut of the sentiment and adhere it the piece. I also added shadowing under the lettering as well.
Then I added some leafy die cuts which one of them has been doubled. Then there is a Winterberry Sprig by Memory Box tucked in there holding a tiny gem. So more ideas came to mind but just so little time!
