This week, we want your sentiments to be the focus! We want to see what you're creating for your statements to stand out! Any card with ONLY sentiments can be entered.

This week, we have a special project from the fabulous Kerry Kung!

"For my project, I decided to use the Say It Out Loud collection.

I created a background by randomly stamping the sentiment from the

Happy 29th Set (SKU# 4224) on the cardstock.

I also distressed the edges with white gelato.

I stamped the Say It Out Loud sentiment from How Old set (SKU# 4222) 
on watercolor paper with black Archival ink and 
colored it with neon markers.

To finish the card, I dyed the natural color twine with Copic refills in neon colors and adhered the sentiment with foam dots."

Thanks for stopping by! We can't wait to see what you create! Happy Stamping!

Wow! How fun are those neon colours!? I'm amazed at how well the twine died with your reinkers - very cool card, Kerry!
