OLW6: Overlapping

Yo!
It's been a crazy-busy week around here as well as being super-hot for May. Blergh.
However, I have snuck in a little creating here and there. Here's one:


Another One-Layer Wednesday challenge from Susan! This time, our task was to overlap our image and sentiment. I went a little nuts, admittedly. Everything does overlap, however, so I think it counts! :)

By the way, this was not my first attempt. It's my third: my first two attempts involved a tree and were just too sad-looking to stick with. I went all girly and pink and it worked for me!

The chandelier (from SU's Grand Soiree) is stamped in silver on Papertrey's raspberry fizz cs, and then I laid out all the words right on top (From Papertrey's Top Ten and additions). Once they were where I wanted them, I just plopped my block down on top and then inked and stamped them all at once, using Staz-On. I figured solvent ink would stick to the silver a little better -- it isn't perfect, but it kinda looks mercury glass-like, which isn't a bad thing in my book.

Hope you dig it!  Off to brainstorm a little -- I made the semi-finals for the summer CAS design team at Splitcoast, so now I gotta figure out what to make next.  Hooray!
