Make It Monday # 291
Emboss Resist Shadow Sentiments
After stamping "Friend" with black ink, Versamark ink and moving it for the shadow
effect, I blended Distress inks over the sentiment, added the floral frame, mounted
the panel on a foam rectangle which was glued to a light yellow A2 card.
Stamp: Bitty Bouquets
Die: Floribunda Frame
Earlier in the week I made a card using an older set, Note Niblets.
I can't remember when I last took this out of its case. When I stamped
the "Cheer" with brown Versafine ink I didn't clean the stamp off
completely and it left a light tan shadow. It works for the MIM
challenge but card #1 fits Ashley's criteria of a white shadow better.
Stamps: Note Niblets
Die: Note Niblets, SSS Stitched Rectangles
We had an unexpected trip to Kenya the first part of July to help with a dental clinic and construction of a new elementary school campus. While there we were invited to visit three different Masai groups. It was an incredible experience and on one occasion our men each received a blanket and walking stick from the Masai men and the ladies a beaded necklace from the Masai women. I'll share a few photos of my third African adventure below and more in the future.

a video of her briskly walking with this heavy load.
