My daughter was home for a week before going back to college. I love having her around! When she leaves, my heart hurts for about a week afterwards until I get used to her being away again. When I came home from the airport, I was thinking that I missed her already so when I saw this stamp, I thought of her and wanted to make her a card so I started playing with my Alcohol/Reinker mixes again. It's so funny how they can look completely different every time! I sprayed them on my craft mat and then swiped the cardstock through. I inked up parts of the En Francais Background Stamp with Chocolate Chip Ink and then touched it to the paper without mounting the stamp onto a block so I could control which parts touched the paper. This gives it a random faded look. The Postcard Stamp was inked in Baked Brown Sugar Ink and then stamped over everything else.
A couple of stamps from the Creative Elements Stamp Set were stamped in Basic Black Ink that was first stamped off to give it a more faded look. The "I Miss You Already" stamp from the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set was also stamped in Basic Black Ink. All of the edges of the cardstocks were distressed using the Stampin' Distress Tool and then sponged with Chocolate Chip Ink and, in a few spots, Basic Black Ink.
The sentiment was cut out using the Chalk Talk Framelits and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. It was then layered onto a piece that was passed through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and then hand cut. The Basic Black layer was also cut with Chalk Talk Framelits. Stampin' Dimensionals were used to mount the sentiment and layers on top of Burlap Ribbon.Three Black Candy Dots from the Neutrals Collection were used as accents.
