Avery Elle March Stamp Highlight: Celebrate

Hey people!  Today Heather and I have more Avery Elle release projects using the March sets to share!  I am working with the new set called Celebrate!  {Am I the only one singing that song right now?...it's time to celebrate...celebraaaaate!...}  


This is such a cute set!  I love the unique font and the fact that the letters can be colored in.  Plus, the stripe and frame are the kind of basics you can use for practically anything.  For my card, I did a kinda chalkboard-y type technique.  I started by stamping the frame stamp in a deep black on kraft card stock.  I stamped the sentiment in the same black and then filled it in with a white pencil.   


The flower was stamped in white and then I colored it in and "shaded" with the white pencil.  I love the way it almost looks hand drawn.  I added a little twine and then put the panel over a gold background.  I like the contrast of the rustic elements (kraft, burlap twine, and white pencil) with the more formal ones (gold and black frame).  


I really appreciate you stopping in to take a peek!  I hope you hop on over to Heather's blog too!  She's highlighting the set All Squared Up today!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
