Welcome to the 2014 World Card Making Day Winners Blog Hop!
Now.... on to the reveal -- the curtain please.......!
I am honored to share my winning card in the Love category. This card was my favorite of all my submissions and I was *ecstatic* when I got the email that it had actually won!
Fun fact: This card is only one layer!
(A special shout-out and thanks to Holly for the photo!) :)
I first sponged ink onto my card base using my Tim Holtz "Rays" stencil. I used Sunny Yellow, Honey, Sunflower, and Goldrush inks. Starting with the lightest and working to darkest. I then created my sentiment on my Silhouette program using Cheddar Jack font and printed it over the stenciled sun rays. Last, I took the tiny heart from my Lawn Fawn "Float My Boat" stamp set and stamped the hearts using Tulip ink that had first been dabbed off a little with a sponge. That's all I did! I had to restrain myself from doing something else to it, but it seemed "finished". :) (All inks were Close to my Heart products.)
BIG thanks and WARM, crafty HUGS to the PC&S team for all they've done, for supporting this hop and for hosting the contest! I wouldn't be the crafter I am today without this magazine and it's inspiration to me, both as a subscriber and as a contributor. I will miss it so. (And the editorial team who were such a bright spot - they made the publishing world fun - not scary at all!) :)
To celebrate the hop, I am offering a fun little giveaway for followers of my blog. To be eligible for the prize, become a follower and leave me a comment below.
