Such an Honor

Today I feel as though I have been showered with kindness and friendship.  When I got up this am, I was off to look at the CAS Challenge at Splitcoast.  Imagine my surprise when the challenge was about casing my cards and I was the Featured Stamper.  Wow...such a huge honor !! 
Thanks so much to all the special people at SCS...I appreciate it so much.
So onto today's card.  I cased myself and this card:
 
 
I masked off the panel then stamped the Penny Black stamp called Footnote inside the masked panel.  I inked my stamp with Distress inks, (Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans), sprayed with water to give a water colour effect and stamped.  When it was dry, I sponged on some more ink and added some splatters. 
After removing the masks, I scored then pierced the edge. 
My sentiment is from Penny Black called Friendship.  I inked it up with Memento black, stamped then cut the banner shape.  I pierced the edges to match the side strip and mounted it using pop dots.
 
I am also adding my card to these challenges:
 
Addicted to Stamps- MAKE YOUR MARK
 
 
 
 
AAA Cards- PLAY WITH WATERCOLOUR 
 
 
 
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
 
Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black/ Memento ink/ Distress ink/ pop dots/ piercing tool
