MIM #322

Above and Below

Lizzie is up on MIM this week sharing a simple design technique that highlights a sentiment and makes it the center of attention. You can see her video and beautiful card HERE.

My Card ~
I die cut and stamped Brushed Blooms in purples, yellows and blues and surrounded (above and below) my sentiment which is  stamped onto a wonky stitched frame. I used a Sizzix embossing folder of large leaves to create a background panel then adhered all these layers onto Stamper's Select White card base. 
Thanks Lizzie for the tip on adding darker color to the edges of your flowers and leaf images to add depth and interest~ Love how this turned out! 😁

I am always motivated and inspired by the many challenges out there, but have to say this is one of my favorites from PTI!  
You can select a card/project that the amazing Design Team has created during the monthly release that has inspired you, and create your own version.  You could use a color scheme, a technique, revisit an older stamp set or ink up a newly purchased one 💓
