It's time for our 26th challenge at Twofers - a whole year of challenges now! - and it was my turn to choose the theme, which is to have a stamped sentiment as the main focus of your work.
I chose the sentiment "Be bold or italic, never regular" from Dylusions. I backed this with a die cut panel, stamped and chalked while the die was still in place, using Versamark ink, a few shades of brown chalk, and a very old manuscript stamp of unknown origin.
I embossed a panel of cream card with a text embossing folder from Crafters Companion to use as the background, but when I did a trial assembly of the card I didn't like the cream, so rather than starting again with a new piece of card in another colour, I changed the colour by sponging it all over with Alchemy Wax and then adding a little distress ink around the edges.
To keep the script theme, I stamped a flower with the same text stamp I had used for the chalking, to add with a few buttons as embellishments.
