SDC 152 - Sentimental OR Topknot Loses It

Gez over at Stampotique Designers Challenge laid down this week's challenge like this:

"I love sentiments and sayings, they really say it all to me! They make a piece finished! I'd like you to share some of your favourite words with us this week! They can be a main focal point or an embellishment, it's your choice! Say it with words..." 

I have to laugh a little as the sentiment I used on my ATC for this week's challenge is not very sentimental at all!  I turned to my trusty Well Said pinterest board again and when I saw this quote I chuckled merrily and got right to work.

Topknot was still sitting on my desk from last week so I reached for her right away.  I love her look - you just know she doesn't put up with any BS and is quite the spunky girl.  She reminds me of my daughter.  :)

The background technique is the same as the one Tim Holtz used for his June tag this month.  I added a little stenciling over it and some splatters and lines.

That's it for today.  Hope your Monday is going fabulously!

  4. I can almost hear Topknot's attitude here, Julie! This actually made me laugh out loud--surprised my dog, that's for sure! The colors you chose are just as perky as that quote!! (I would like your daughter!) Thanks so much for participating in the Stampotique Designers' Challenge this week!
