Hi there! Just popping in today with a quick post with a card I created for the current Gossip Column at the Winnie & Walter blog, where the uber-talented star gossiper Teheerah Atchia is challenging us to draw inspiration from the work of Alan Kitching. I had several ideas I wanted to turn into cards, but sometimes life gets in the way, so I'm really happy I managed to squeeze in this one card before the linky closes.

After embossing the HI sentiment using the W&W cutaway die, I stamped the upper case sentiments from the W&W Bubble Talk set using several Distress Oxide inks and then stamped the lower case sentiments from another W&W stamp set (In bloom: Julie's roses).

I'm also linking up my card at:
