My Stampin Up order arrived today. Whew, it was a tough decision on which item I wanted to use first. The winner was My Friend! I used The Friday Mashup for my layout and toyed with how I wanted to add the sponging. Originally I was going to stamp my image on Whisper White; but, I really wanted more contrast and something a bit different. So, I decided to use Basic Black for my focal point and to mash it up by sponging the image with Classic White after embossing the greeting and background details. Two triangles to “frame” the image and correspond with the Kaleidoscope paper added the finishing touch.
