4CC #392 - ATG + Just a Sentiment Twist

Happy March 1st!

That means 20 days until SPRING!  YAY!

It's also Thursday 
 that meansa new challenge starts 
4 Crafty Chicks!

Leanne is our hostess this week!  

She's decided the twist for this week to be using just a sentiment on the front of our projects!

I dug out a beautiful sentiment stamp set, Lovely and Sweet Stamps, by Lil' Inker Designs,  for my card:
I've been trying to stretch myself creatively by trying different techniques.  Thanks to Jennifer McGuire's wonderful techniques and tutorials, I've been learning a lot and having fun too!  The one I tried here was Multi-Color Inking using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.  I colored right on the stamps with my Zig pens and then stamped, using my Misti so I could stamp several times and get a crisper color. 

I also created my own background using the Zigs.  I just colored the sides, top and bottom that would show up around my sentiment layer to match each row of color.

Now stop by the Hen House and check out the rest of the Chicks' projects, lots of fun and creative inspiration there!  Then, come play along with us.  Remember it's always Anything Goes  and the twist this week is "Just a Sentiment".

Crafty Chick Blessings!
