TGIFC108 - Sketch Challenge

Hello, and welcome back! I'm back today with the latest TGIF Challenges project. We have the wonderful sketch you see below to work with this week.

There are some big and bold greetings included in the set. Each greeting is two steps, the first is the main greeting and the second is a shadow image.

I cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and sponged on Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay inks using a piece of Stampin' Sponge. I dropped some water on the background using my Aqua Painter, let it set for a minute and then blotted it up with a facial tissue. I love this water drop affect!

OSAT Blog Hop - Clean and Simple
