Sentimentally Yours: Ask Albert

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Happy spring from Laurie!  I'm back with a card for the new challenge going on during the last half of the month of April:  Sentimentally Yours.  We are looking for your projects which feature your favorite sentiments or sayings.  And I found a great one for this one - Eenie, Meenie, Minie - from Carmen's Veranda.

I also used the Einstein stamp from Carmen Veranda and the Ledger background stamp from Lost Coast Designs.

For my background I dove into my box of Gelli prints and found this one using cream, brown, and gold acrylic paints and some stenciling.  My stamping covers most of it so you can't really see the stencil design on this one too clearly.  But stamped with the Ledger background in black StayzOn ink gave it kind of a vintage feel, I thought.  I then tore around the edges and applied some Vintage Photo Distress Ink to age it a bit.

I stamped Einstein with black ink onto cream card stock and fussy cut him out then positioned him on the lower portion of my card front.  Next I stamped my sentiment with black ink onto the same card stock, cut it out, and edged it with black ink.  It gets positioned just above Albert as shown.  Layering with a piece of black card stock is the final step.

Please join us for this new, fun challenge!  Be sure  that rubber stamping features prominently in your projects (no digital stamps!) and you could be the winner of some free stamps!
