PTI MIM #257: Sentiment Strip Grounding

Lexi Daly showed us several ways to ground our images with sentiment strips in this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink. My biggest challenge was finding images to use because I don't own a lot of non-floral sets. My other weakness though is sentiments. Guess I better rework my wish list once again now that we're in the midst of a new release. I'm in need of masculine cards for the next couple of months so that was on my radar. Here's what I came up with to satisfy the challenge.

Since I don't own the stamps yet for Feather Finery, I added some white paint splatters to my die-cuts.          Before adding my colored strips and feathers, I added score lines (thanks, Laurie, for the inspiration) to my white card base.

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, Hawaiian Shores, SU Basic Gray and Black
Ink: VersaMark
Stamps: Keep It Simple: Birthday
Dies: Feathery Finery
Other: Paintbrush, White Watercolor, White Embossing Powder and SU Dimensionals
