Hello ... from me to you.
I recently got the Alphabet Uno set of stamps
from Rubber Dance and decided to have a play with the letters.
It is so liberating and fun to be able to make your own words!
The giraffe, from African Animals, has long been a favourite stamp
of mine. This card uses the word HELLO, which is also part of the
African Animals set. So it was easy to use the word twice.
Once in a small font and again as large letters.
The letters have been cut into strips so that they can be used easier.
Simply mask off the letters that you want, ink them up and stamp them out.
A little colour to match the theme this month
and that part was done.
The background was heaps of fun too.
Simply scrape the paint in layers onto your card with a credit card.
It was fun to keep adding layer after layer.
I made a white painty area in the middle for the letters to go.
The background and the letters match.
The other stamp set that I've used is Textured Flowers.
The large flowers were a great background addition,
while the smaller stamps in this set were used by stamping with paint onto the background.
Again, using the same colours as the background.
The stamp sets used were:

I hope you enjoyed this quick run through of how this card was made.
There is a friend of mine that I haven't seen for awhile,
so this will be on it's way to her soon.
She'll get a lovely surprise and put a smile on her face.
Just a quick reminder that our challenge over on facebook still has a few days to go.
If you haven't joined in yet then you are in luck! There is still time.
You can follow the colour theme (like I did today),
or you can choose Anything Goes.
