One Layer Sentiment Stamping

Happy Saturday crafty friends!!  Today I am sharing a one layer card that features sentiment stamping for the background!  I purchased the Mama Elephant set Tiny Heros and hadn't inked it up yet - so I wanted to do something a little different this go 'round with my stamps.  So - I chose two of the sentiments to use as my background for the sentiment stamping, and two colors of Memento Ink -Lady Bug and Cantaloupe.  I created a 5 x 5 square card base, and I die cut an oval from a Stampin Up Ovals die set from some Inkadinkado Masking paper - and placed that as much in the upper center of my card base as possible.  Then, I just started inking up my sentiments, and starting stamping.

Once I was done with my stamping, I took some Salty Ocean Distress Ink and inked around the edges of my mask paper to really define the edge, so when I removed my masking paper, it would give it some fun dimension even though this was a one layer card.

I then stamped one of the kid images from the same stamp set with my MFT Hybrid Black Licorice ink, and colored in the mask part and star.  I really wanted to highlight those images to represent our "Super, awesome" this girl was!  It was hard to not color in the entire image.  I really wanted to do something different.  

I have the video tutorial below in case you wanted to see how I made this card from start to finish.

Enjoy your weekend, and I'll be back soon!! Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
