Streaking technique

I'm going to send this card to my 25 year old cousin who is undergoing chemotherapy for lymphoma...She's a sweet and brave girl! The inside says "to make it better". The sentiments are part of the Perfect Pairs set from Stampin' Up!. I find the entire set so useful, and it really fills in some of my imagined sayings needs.

The streaking technique just involves dragging the stamp in the direction the stamped image has already traveled (figuratively) before lifting up the stamp.  Easy, but different.  The butterfly image is from the Creative Elements Stamp Set. I created my own embossed background of butterflies by stacking and gluing together 4 or 5 of three different butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Sizzlit Die onto a piece of the stiff backing sheet from our designer series paper and embossed it onto the Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  The Perfect Pennants Die has a perfect scalloped circle (in Soft Suede) to layer under our 2-1/2 inch circle punch. Add a little Pool Party sponging, the gorgeous matching Pool Party 3/8" ruffled ribbon and 3 sets of twin pearls, and you're finished. Quick and easy.
