CTMH Australasian Share The Love Blog Hop

Operation Smile is a private,  not for profit organisation providing reconstructive surgery to children and young adults born in developing countries. 

This month, the Share The Love stamp set is available for NZD$33, with $7 USD from each set going directly to Operation Smile. 

Today we will be sharing some inspiration using this stamp set. We hope you will be compelled to purchase this set and in so doing, contribute to the life changing work of Operation Smile. 

If you came here from Wendy's Blog, you are on the right track!

I decided to create a pastal card with a bold typewriter from the stamp set. I started off by masking off an area of my white cardstock panel, and adding thee different colours of watercolour paint to the inside of the masked rectangle. This created a fun pastel focal point.

When my paint had dried, I stamped the sentiment in black ink then ran the white cardstock through my Cuttlebug with the Arrow Embossing Folder.

To create the typewriter, I stamped the image on black cardstock with White Daisy pigment ink, then covered it in clear embossing powder and heat set it. I fussy cut it then adhered it with some foam tape on the watercoloured panel.

Now, pop over and see what Shaunna has created.
