Good morning everyone,
I have the honour of being Card Captain this week for the Yahoo Group Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps. Come join the fun.
For my first card this week I used the acrylic smash technique to create the kimono and background paper. The technique can be found on the Splitcoaststampers web site:
I combined the colours of green, gold and purple for both the kimono and the background paper but let more white show through on the background. The Japanese sentiment stamp is from my collection of unmounted rubber stamps and I added ribbon, pearls and a bow to complete the card.
My creative thought for the day is by Harvey Mackay:
"One sure-fire way to stay creative: force yourself to learn something new."
