Our challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! is an easy one this week...Anything Goes! I was reading online somewhere that someone missed the stencils that Stampin' Up! used to sell, so I decided to use my framelits to create my own! I used the colors from Fab Friday and the layout and sponging challenge from The Friday Mashup.
I created three separate stencils for my panel: One with hearts, one with arrows and one with the "I heart you" phrase. This way I was sure to only get the color I wanted for each stencil.
After I sponged the colors in the stencils, I dry embossed the panel with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder and sponged the edges. I wanted my sentiment image to look kind of like a bullseye, so I layered the circles underneath it and put an arrow through the whole thing. This card is kind of a mod podge of different stamps and Big Shot items, but I really like how they all combined together!
