May Member Blog Hop and a little encouragement, carnival style

Today is my post day for the Smeared Ink design team and the May Member Blog hop at Smeared & Smudged Ink. For the blog hop, the challenge was to use a technique you've always wanted to try & haven't yet OR to use a technique you haven't in a while. I had something a little different in mind but am having some allergy aggravation for a few days so I had to make a few changes.

I am using the Smeared Ink unmounted rubber stamps Carnival set for sentiments & the image. He's colored in with colored pencils & cut out to "pop up" on the interior of the card. I'm not sure why, but I wanted to do an "encouragement" card today, mixing handwritten text (Prismacolor marker in Cocoa bean, fine tip end) with the stamped sentis (Palette Hybrid Ink in Noir Black).

The first displayed photo shows an idea of the dimension this technique provides. Be sure to visit each of the bloggers who are sharing projects with you today & leave them some love!!
