I love the freedom to create that perfect sentiment when making hand made cards. If I don't have the right stamp is it easy enough to create one on the computer and print it onto the card front. Though most of the time I don't think about it until after my card front is colored. I do find it easier to pick a sentiment and then find the perfect image. It is just something I don't seem to practice... lol. This time though I thought about the sentiment before I stamped my image.
I stamped my Art Impressions image onto my piece of grid plastic using my Misti. I created my sentiment in my Printmaster program and printed it out. I placed the grid over it and figure which way I needed to move the two sentiment boxes and reprinted it. It took three tries to line up the sentiment boxes where I wanted them in relationship to the image.
After printing my sentiment I placed my card front into my Misti and stamped my image. I colored her with Copic Markers. I drew in the checkerboard floor, added glossy accents to Lillie's glasses and necklace, and sequins to the card for a little extra bling.
