Day 2 card for Stretch Your Stamps 2 class!

Time for my Day 2 card for OCC's Stretch Your Stamps 2 class. This time I CASE'd Laura Sterckx fab ombre card! I was blown away that she's only 16 - she has awesome skills!!!  My original background stamp I chose prior to class starting was Hero Art's Newspaper background stamp BUT when I watched the Day 1 videos I knew it would not do for these techniques SO I searched through my stamps and found a border stamp from Mama Elephant that I could use. Let me say that repeatedly stamping a border stamp in Versamark is not easy on the eyes but I digress!

Here's my card:

 (Sorry for the lighting - dusk was setting in!)

I loved that thread thing Laura did behind the sentiment and have seen others use, but I have not gotten the hang of that so I went with a doily die to create a similar look.

Thanks for checking out my card! PS - I'll be creating another card for Day1 later this week - I need to hunt down some real water color paints to finish my card.

Ingredients: Mama Elephant Modern Borders; Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler, Word Bubbles die; MFT Delicate Doilies
