AAA All About the Words ...

Good Morning ... it's time for a new challenge at AAA Cards ... are you ready to play?!  As the title of my post implies we are focusing on words for this challenge.

I have to confess that I don't always include a sentiment on my cards ... very often because I don't think about it until it's too late or I just don't know where to put it!!  Clearly for this challenge I had to think about the words first!!

The panel was created using a Gel printing plate and a selection of acrylic paints.  I stamped the quote using versafine onyx black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to intensify the blackness and add a little shine.  I doodled a frame around the panel to add some more interest.

I used:
Kaisercraft - Pretty Little Things
WOW Clear Embossing Powder
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
CUTplorations Stitched Rectangle

I hope you are inspired and will join in with the challenge.



  1. what a fabulous card,amazing colors and I "need" to try doodling a frame more often, it's fab, if it were a stamp i'd buy it ;-)

  2. I too am impressed by that doodled frame - so brave of you! You made me smile when I read your post about how this made you start with something you don't always include - that's a great challenge theme then!
