Shadow Backgrounds

Hi there!  Happy to play along with Papertrey Ink
 Make it Monday
  I made this card on Monday but just getting around to
posting it today.

This is my second attempt as the first one was stamped in a dark gray,
 I thought it was too dark and busy so I remade it with Soft Stone Ink.
After I saw I pressed down too hard when I stamped the sentiment 
I ran out of time to remake a third time, so don't see the thick "on"

Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week and thank you for stopping by today!

Enjoy the Journey

with Lexi Daly

Lexi Daly's darling card
Hello friends! I had a bit of time today to play along with:
 Make It Monday over at Papertrey Ink 
creating Inchie Elements.

I used fun foam to raise my panel and foam tape to
 pop up each die cut square. I smushed ink onto a surface then 
spritzed with water and placed my watercolor paper on top.
I dabbed the paper with a tissue, let dry then cut.

Thank you for the visit and all your kind comments on past 
post. I hope you're  having a wonderful summer.
