FMS237 Live Laugh Love Card

After a non-self imposed hiatus, I'm back to blogging.  My old domain name expired when I thought I'd renewed it.  Tried to wait it out so I could re-buy it, but someone else snapped it up at auction.  Oh well!  Time to get a new domain name so and She Stamps was born!

To get back into the groove, I checked out Freshly Made Sketches, always a great place for inspiration with such talented artists!  Here's this week's challenge:
And here's what I came up with:

First step was to stamp the balloon images on the Whisper White panel.  I also stamped 3 times onto scrap paper and cut out to  make masks.  Added 2 way glue and once dry placed them on top of the balloons.

I made a paper mask using the negative die cut of the Sunburst Thinlit.  Added some 2 way glue to the back of the mask and let it dry.  Sponged Daffodil Delight ink onto Whisper White panel, going a little darker at the edges.  

Finally stamped the sentiment in black on top of the sunburst.  The right side band is the Pop of Pink DSP and the left it a strip of Melon Mambo cardstock.  

Stamp Sets:  Stampin' Up! - Layering Love, Celebrate Today
Colors:  Melon Mambo, Rose Red, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay
Paper:  Pop of Pink Specialty DSP, Whisper White CS, Whisper White Thick CS
Accessories:  Sunburst Thinlit
Technique:  Masking

Thanks for stopping by!

Yes, I agree with Linda! I love your card AND your new domain name (I don't know what it had been but this is a really fun one and shows you are more than a stamper; I love it!). Thanks for the instructions, I really appreciated reading them! ;)
