I love the word "wonderful." It literally means to be full of wonder. What a fabulous way to live life! It's one of the reasons why this particular WOTG is a favorite of mine. The sentiment "You make life WONDERFUL!" is both beautiful and versatile. Today I used it to create a gift bag.
Although it doesn't show well in the picture, I colored the word WONDERFUL with Creme Brulee and Blush to bring out the meaning of the word. The scallop border was created by stamping the image in Juniper on a strip of white paper. I handcut around the bottom edge to create the scallop, glued a zip-strip over top, then trimmed my white paper to leave about a 1/8 inch top border.
The sentiment is stamped in Cocoa over the die cut from Art Philosophy (p.55 at 2.25 inches). I needed a strong contrast to the border behind. I tried it in Creme Brulee, Juniper, and Saddle, but there wasn't enough of a contrast. Plus the flower just looked odd, so Cocoa to the rescue. LOVE that ink pad. It's rescued me more times than I care to count.
The floral image at the bottom of the sentiment was colored with alcohol marker sets.
Tie a big bow, embellish with the Balloon Ride Assortment and Sparkles Clear Flourishes included in the WOTG, and you have a lovely gift made from a plain, brown sack.
Until next time,
