PTI MIM #279: Curved Sentiments

Well, my company is gone and so I hit my stamping room. This week's Make It Monday Challenge for Papertrey Ink is spearheaded by Ashley. She shared a video showing how she curves a straight sentiment to fit around a stamped image or on a die-cut.  Her wedding card is just delightful and so colorful. I came up with a Thinking of You card shown below, which I often need at the ready. 




My Mat Stack #3 die-cut is backed with white foam to pop it up, and on the top portion I used an Ink Blending Tool with Blueberry Sky ink. The center bouquet is popped up using SU Dimensionals and the other two adhered directly to the Mat Stack die-cut. The stems are tucked behind the "almost" Scarlet Jewel Glitter Paper from Joann's. To add to the Kraft layer adhered to the Stamper's Select White card base, I splattered watered-down white acrylic paint. That's all for now, and I'm looking forward to seeing what others have created for this challenge. Thanks for the reminder, Ashley, as I often forget to curve my sentiments. 


Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments.
